-<h2>The GNU Operating System - <a href="/philosophy/philosophy.html">Free as 
in Freedom</a></h2>
-<h3>What is the GNU project?</h3>
-GNU Project was launched in 1984 to develop a complete UNIX-like operating
-system which is 
-<a href="philosophy/free-sw.html">free software</a>: 
-the GNU system.
-Variants of the GNU operating system, which use the kernel called Linux,
-are now widely used; though these systems are often referred to as 
-&ldquo;Linux&rdquo;, they are more accurately called 
-<a href="/gnu/linux-and-gnu.html">GNU/Linux systems</a>.
-<p>GNU is a recursive acronym for &ldquo;GNU's Not UNIX&rdquo;; 
-it is pronounced <em>guh-noo</em>, like <em>canoe</em>.
-<h3>What is Free Software?</h3>
-<p>``Free software'' is a matter of liberty, not price.
-To understand the concept, you should think of ``free'' as in 
-``free speech,'' not as in
-``free beer.''
-<p>Free software is a matter of the users' freedom to run, copy,
-distribute, study, change and improve the software.  More precisely,
-it refers to four kinds of freedom, for the users of the software:</p>
-  <li>The freedom to run the program, for any purpose (freedom 0).</li>
-  <li>The freedom to study how the program works, and adapt it to your needs
-      (freedom 1).   Access to the source code is a precondition for this.</li>
-  <li>The freedom to redistribute copies so you can help your neighbor
-      (freedom 2).</li>
-  <li>The freedom to improve the program, and release your improvements
-     to the public, so that the whole community benefits
-      (freedom 3).   Access to the source code is a precondition for this.</li>
-<h3>What is the Free Software Foundation?</h3>
-<p>The <a href="http://www.fsf.org";>Free Software Foundation</a> 
-(FSF) is the principal organizational sponsor of the GNU Project. 
-The FSF receives very little funding from corporations or grant-making 
-foundations, but relies on support from individuals like you.
-<p>Please consider helping the FSF by 
-<a href="http://member.fsf.org/";>becoming an associate member</a>, 
-<a href="http://order.fsf.org/";>buying manuals and gear</a> or by 
-<a href="http://donate.fsf.org/";>donating money</a>. 
-If you use Free Software in your business, you can also consider 
-<a href="http://patron.fsf.org/";>corporate patronage</a> or 
-<a href="http://www.gnu.org/order/deluxe.html";>a deluxe distribution of 
-GNU software</a> as a way to support the FSF.
-The GNU project supports the FSF's mission to preserve, protect and 
-promote the freedom to use, study, copy, modify, and redistribute 
-computer software, and to defend the rights of Free Software users.
-We support the 
-<a href="/philosophy/basic-freedoms.html">freedoms of speech, 
-press, and association</a> on the Internet, 
-<a href="http://www.eff.org/privnow/";>the right to use encryption 
-software for private communication</a>, 
-and the <a href="/philosophy/protecting.html">right to write software</a> 
-unimpeded by private monopolies.  You can also learn more about these
-issues in the book 
-<a href="/doc/book13.html">Free Software, Free Society</a>
-and the independent
