GNU, GPL, Open Source John Sullivan, executive director of the Free Software Foundation: "Were it grounded in reality, Oracle's claim that copyright law gives them proprietary control over any software that uses a particular functional API would be terrible for free software and programmers everywhere. It is an unethical and greedy interpretation created with the express purpose of subjugating as many computer users as possible, and is particularly bad in this context because it comes at a time when the sun has barely set on the free software community's celebration of Java as a language newly suitable for use in the free world. Fortunately, the claim is not yet reality, and we hope Judge Alsup will keep it that way." Couldn't agree more.

"THAT is what makes him batshit crazy and if you find that this is not irregular than good for you.

Another brilliant definion: irregular = batshit crazy.

Did I say Stallman was regular? Did I not say previously that I think Stallman was an uber-nerd with no social sensitivities? What part of that made you conclude that I think Stallman is regular?

Jeez, no wonder you defend Apple reflexively. They are the ultimate purveyors of conformity and you just argued that Stallman is batshit crazy for being highly irregular.


Yeap the issue here is that
irregular ≠ batshit crazy
