Founding Fathers

I got a chance to watch some of the additional interview material from Revolution OS last night. I was struck with how clearly rms came across when explaining the motivation behind the GNU project. For all his faults he's still a hell of a visionary revolutionary. I wonder if he'll be remembered in 60 years time when there is enough perspective on the growth of software to start writing history books about it?
