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.

The only time I agree with RMS is when he's apologizing, so you can bet it's quite rare.

I've read several things he's said to repeatedly get a "fresh take" on him. I know a lot of people listen to what he has to say, so I try to brush off any previous sour taste he has left in my mouth, but I always end up with a mouth full of lemon juice.

just needed to rant, nothing to see here...
