Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y During the Gran Canaria Desktop Summit, Richard M. Stallman of the Free Software Foundation (and the Superfluous Introduction Award goes to...) gave a keynote speech. Said keynote speech raised a few eyebrows in the Free software community because of a number of questionable remarks regarding women in technology. David "Lefty" Schlesinger, member of the GNOME Advisory Board and active in the mobile open source community, took issue with RMS' remarks and decided to call him out on it. The response he got was... Less than satisfying.

No it wouldn't.

In case of Steve Jobs, the RDF would take care of it. And in case of Bill Gates, "analysts" would hail him as being the new Master of the Universe, and would write long content-less articles about how the next version of Windows would take care of female IT-virgins and liberate them from the patriarchal society which keeps oppressing them - or something similar and just as stupid.
