Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y During the Gran Canaria Desktop Summit, Richard M. Stallman of the Free Software Foundation (and the Superfluous Introduction Award goes to...) gave a keynote speech. Said keynote speech raised a few eyebrows in the Free software community because of a number of questionable remarks regarding women in technology. David "Lefty" Schlesinger, member of the GNOME Advisory Board and active in the mobile open source community, took issue with RMS' remarks and decided to call him out on it. The response he got was... Less than satisfying.

Richard Stallman is a large reason why I no longer push Linux. The Linux community is some type of club where you have to do a weird handshake to get in.

Computers are like automobiles... they serve a purpose. We are automotive mechanics folks, not gods with everyone else being silly women.
