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.

Agree!

I am more interested what is done an said on this summit on a technical level.

Unfortunately this "technical" site is more interested in gossip than in the actually things that where discussed there.

I know there is a lot of talking done about the next KDE 4 version, Gnome and Qt etc., etc. An where are we looking at? Some lousy rant about what RMS should have said, nothing technical or informative. Nil.. Nada...

Really a shame....
