GNU, GPL, Open Source It's been a while since we caught up with Stallman. But a couple months ago we took a look around at what's happening with law, politics and technology and realized that he maybe perhaps his extremism and paranoia were warranted all along. So when we were contacted by an Iranian Linux publication and asked if we would like to publish an English translation of a recent interview they had done with Stallman, I thought that it was a particularly rich opportunity.

If you think there is less freedom there it's because you don't value the freedom to be oppressed by religious wackos! Now if we can just get that here in the U.S., I'll be really happy.

Speaking of - the totally unjustifiable push to brace the U.S. for the 'need' to intervene in Iran next (because Iraq was so justified?) worries me a lot more than the ethics of using Safari vs. some "free" browser. Maybe Stallman should talk about global freedom and ethics.
