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.

Ok - RMS told a stupid joke - I can understand what the fuss is about. I wonder why nobody reacts when articles like "Ubuntu is so easy that even my girlfriend can use it" top on the digg. Sexism among so called nerds is quite common.
