RMS has been historically right. I really think that open source should directly fight Ms on any ground.
If just mono was licensed under the gpl3 there would be noboby complaing, so I think De Icaza and Novell have something to hide.
He has also has been historically looney, and the "right" desitions he has made always have had side effects, for extremist MS haters his desitions will always be right, so when he tossed feminist remarks was he right?.
Is not hard to make the "desitions" he makes, everybody can, but most people are not as looney as him.
RMS = Looney with power.
Oh, silly me, I mean sexist remarks.
Don't underestimate the usefulness of stating the obvious from a pulpit.
Maybe RMS said things other people in similar positions knew, so maybe it was 'obvious'. What makes this not pointless is that people who *didn't* find it obvious were thereby informed.
If it's so easy to be right the way RMS has been right, why aren't you famous for being right? If you don't tell anybody else obvious things they remain obvious only to you.
