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.

Steve jobs is steve jobs and bill bates is bill bates. Like when _should_ anyone behave like anyone. And even if Steve Jobs `Stallmaned' the crowd with something like this the civilized world would keep going as usual. Stop beating ppl over the head with the nerfbat of political correctness only to malform even more wannabe intellectual snobs who think that sunlight comes out of their arses. These people distract attention from the real issues by encouraging societies to keeping aiming at shadows over made-up non-issues.

This is what political correctness is doing and we dont buy into such b*****t anymore. It's over.
