Mono Project If you don't like personal, blog-style reporting, you might want to skip this item. A few days ago, during a speech at Software Freedom Day in Boston, Richard Stallman has, at least in my book, crossed a line that I thought he would never cross.

RMS's chip

RMS has a chip on his shoulder from a time when somebody STOLE his Emacs code and built a better Emacs from it. Today, user's of XEmacs are essentially working off this other base. When RMS speaks, he usually tells of his sob story over this and how wrong it was that somebody took his code and modified it without his permission and distributed it.

Anyhow... I just wanted to add that so people have a better insight into RMS.
