A Classic Drama Hacker-Style

Hacking often fascinates the Internet art community, and at times the two
practices collide. In 'Revolution OS,' hacker ethics are captured in a
palatable documentary about Linux and the free software movement. The
at times playful and clever, is a classic underdog story, the hackers vs.
Microsoft, complete with a spiritual leader (Richard Stallman), and folk
hero encounters (Linus Torvalds' appearance at the 1999 LinuxWorld
conference). 'Revolution OS' has been screening at small venues across the
U.S. since early 2001, and its first eight minutes are viewable online.
final acts are still being produced on CPUs everywhere. -Brooke Singer
