GNU, GPL, Open Source Well, this is refreshing. While Richard Stallman is a staunch critic of anything closed and non-Free, his ire seems mostly directed towards DRM and Microsoft. However, a lesser known fact is that he often talks about Apple's Mac OS X too in his speeches. During those speeches, he repeatedly claimed Mac OS X contained a backdoor which allowed Apple to forcibly impose software changes upon users. Stallman has now posted a retraction for those claims.

It kinda sucks though. I was counting on that backdoor for my upper class hookers to get in.

Now I need to evaluate my plan for world domination.

I was wondering if, perhaps, they had gotten to him first, "persuading" him to issue this cover story in order to secure that avenue of attack. I'm not sure how much autonomy your operatives are given.
