The GNU operating system is turning 25 this year, and the Free Software
Foundation (FSF) has kicked off its month-long celebration of the anniversary
by releasing "Happy Birthday to GNU," a short film featuring the English
humorist, actor, novelist and filmmaker Stephen Fry.

In the five-minute film, Fry compares the free software operating system to
"good science" and contrasts it with the "kind of tyranny" imposed by the
proprietary software produced by companies like Microsoft and Apple that it
replaces. He encourages people to use free GNU/Linux distributions like
gNewSense (<http://gnewsense.org>) and free software generally, for freedom's
