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 man is not apologizing to Apple! He is apologizing to you for making false claims about Apple. Nobody need to apologize anything to Apple! It's just a mindless corporation.
The man's apologizing to you for saying something wrong. Then he goes on to warn you about other problems with Apple so you are not mistaken about them. I believe this is just the right place to do it.
