Richard Matthew Stallman , con frecuencia abreviado como «rms», es un programador estadounidense y fundador del movimiento por el software libre en el mundo.

Entre sus logros destacados como programador se incluye la realización del editor de texto GNU Emacs, el compilador GCC, y el depurador GDB, bajo la rúbrica del Proyecto GNU. Sin embargo, es principalmente conocido por el establecimiento de un marco de referencia moral, político y legal para el movimiento del software libre, como una alternativa al desarrollo y distribución del software no libre o privativo. Es también inventor del concepto de copyleft , un método para licenciar software de tal forma que su uso y modificación permanezcan siempre libres y queden en la comunidad de usuarios y desarrolladores.

„Freedom means not having a master. And in the area of computing, freedom means not using proprietary software.“

— Richard Stallman
Context: To have the choice between proprietary software packages, is being able to choose your master. Freedom means not having a master. And in the area of computing, freedom means not using proprietary software. Free Software and Beyond: Human Rights in the Use of Software", address at Goeteborg, Sweden (16 May 2007)

„I consider that the golden rule requires that if I like a program I must share it with other people who like it.“

— Richard Stallman
Context: I consider that the golden rule requires that if I like a program I must share it with other people who like it. Software sellers want to divide the users and conquer them, making each user agree not to share with others. I refuse to break solidarity with other users in this way. I cannot in good conscience sign a nondisclosure agreement or a software license agreement. For years I worked within the Artificial Intelligence Lab to resist such tendencies and other inhospitalities, but eventually they had gone too far: I could not remain in an institution where such things are done for me against my will. So that I can continue to use computers without dishonor, I have decided to put together a sufficient body of free software so that I will be able to get along without any software that is not free. I have resigned from the AI lab to deny MIT any legal excuse to prevent me from giving GNU away.

„The hard part of programming is the same regardless of the language.“

— Richard Stallman
Context: Programming is programming. If you get good at programming, it doesn't matter which language you learned it in, because you'll be able to do programming in any language. The hard part of programming is the same regardless of the language. And if you have a talent for that, and you learned it here, you can take it over there. Oh, one thing: if you want to get a picture of a programming at its most powerful, you should learn Lisp or Scheme because they are more elegant and powerful than other languages. "You broke the Internet. We're making ourselves a GNU one." (August 2013) https://gnunet.org/internetistschuld (around 02:16)

„I want to make sure that all versions of GNU remain free.“

— Richard Stallman
Context: GNU is not in the public domain. Everyone will be permitted to modify and redistribute GNU, but no distributor will be allowed to restrict its further redistribution. That is to say, proprietary modifications will not be allowed. I want to make sure that all versions of GNU remain free.

„Freedom and community are important.“

— Richard Stallman
Context: Freedom and community are important. Gratis software is not worth such an effort, because price is usually not an ethical issue. Paying isn’t wrong, and being paid isn’t wrong. Trampling other people’s freedom and community is wrong, so the free software movement aims to put an end to it, at least in the area of software. "Interview with Richard M. Stallman" in Free Software Magazine (23 January 2008) http://www.freesoftwaremagazine.com/articles/interview_with_richard_stallman
