Richard Stallman 

,----[ Quote ]
| In 1983 I announced the plan to develop a 
| complete free operating system called GNU. The 
| system that millions of people use, and often 
| refer to as "Linux", is a variant of the GNU 
| system.
| What hardware are you using?
| I am using a Lemote Yeelong, a netbook with a 
| Loongson chip and a 9-inch display. This is my 
| only computer, and I use it all the time. I 
| chose it because I can run it with 100% free 
| software even at the BIOS level.



Following up on the GNOME/GNU fiasco

,----[ Quote ]
| Listen people, you donât have to agree with
| RMS. Heâs not a god or infallible. Just stop
| lying about the man and what he says. Just
| stop lying.
| If it only happened once or twice, I would
| be generous and assume it wasnât malicious.
| But it is constant, and seems to come too
| easy to be an honest misunderstanding. Iâm
| tired of trying to determine if a person is
| misrepresenting RMS because they are a
| malicious liar, or merely an uninformed
| moron parroting a malicious liar. It is
| quickly become a distinction without a
| difference.
| One more thing before I move on: straw man.
| We see you doing it. You arenât fooling
| anyone. Itâs disgusting, dishonest, childish
| and malicious. Stop it. Stop lying.


GNOME Foundation seeks to hide its dirty linen

,----[ Quote ]
| A few members of the GNOME Foundation have
| submitted a petition to the board, asking
| for a referendum to be held on making the
| Foundation's mailing list archives private
| and limited to its members only.


GNOME: Split from GNU Project?

,----[ Quote ]
| Stallman had also run into conflict with the
| Gnome initiator and Novell coworker Miguel
| de Icaza. He had persistently criticized the
| work on Mono and the involvement of
| Microsoft in various projects.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
