GNU, GPL, Open Source Well, this is refreshing. While Richard Stallman is a staunch critic of anything closed and non-Free, his ire seems mostly directed towards DRM and Microsoft. However, a lesser known fact is that he often talks about Apple's Mac OS X too in his speeches. During those speeches, he repeatedly claimed Mac OS X contained a backdoor which allowed Apple to forcibly impose software changes upon users. Stallman has now posted a retraction for those claims.

What you just said made no sense, if he thought OS X had a backdoor because he heard from some source that he can't even remember right now it means he didn't have enough real proof in the first place.

That is ok though in the world of RMS, where you can say whatever ridiculous, unsubstantiated thing you want and eat things from between your toes :-)
