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.

I bet Apple lawyers aproached RMS in some kind of way, so he better stopped spreading unfounded FUD.

It does sound like he's been threatened in some way by someone in a shiny white suit and a glowing apple in the middle.

It actually reads like it was written by a lawyer.
