Richard Stallman Explains Free Hardware

,----[ Quote ]
| We need free software to interface with the hardware, and to develop it, we
| need access to the hardware specs. I have often called on companies
| to «publish the specs» because that's the way I envisioned free software
| developers would be able to write free drivers. I do not approve of
| nondisclosure agreements for generally useful technical information. However,
| if signing one enables you to write a free driver, that may justify the evil. * *
