The Linux Users' Group of Davis
celebrated their four-year anniversary on

screened the independent film "REVOLUTION OS," which tells the
tale of computer programmers who rebelled against Microsoft's dominance
and created the Linux computer operating system and the 'Open Source'
The film included interviews with key personalities from the
Linux and Open Source communities, including

Free Software Foundation; and Brian Behlendorf, a developer
of "Apache," the world's most popular web serving software.
