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.

"Yeap the issue here is that
irregular ≠ batshit crazy

It's not an issue for me. You were the one who argued Stallman was batshit crazy for being irregular.

I myself never said Stallman was a normal person.

From the above term, you inferred that I thought you considered Stallman a normal person? I hope it was something else I said and no this otherwise...
