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 is just socially out of this world. If he had had a proper childhood free software would probably be much more advanced by now.
If he had been socially normal coming out of college he probably would have gone with the LISP machine startup companies and/or not worked in the AI lab for years. And he probably would have never quit his AI job and started GNU. And he definitely wouldn't have been able to stay working on GNU for so many years with so little income (how much can you make selling tapes with Emacs on them?). It takes money to feed a family.
