RMS is a moron and he should stay out of FOSS and the FSF for good.

Stallman is most definitely a based dude to whom the entire open source movement owes a great deal. It is unfortunate that he did not pick the time and place to get up on a soapbox about the proper use of the word "assault" wisely, resulting in a particularly disasterous kerfuffle.

The letter is well written, especially this part: "He is usually more focused on the philosophical underpinnings, and pursuing the objective truth and linguistic purism, while underemphasising people’s feelings on matters he’s commenting on. This makes his arguments vulnerable to misunderstanding and misrepresentation, something which we feel is happening in the open letter calling for his removal."

Programmers who tend toward linguistic purism should also strive to recognize the conditions under which technically sound but potentially abrasive statements could make their arguments more vulnerable to misrepresentation and try to avoid doing that.

Based ninjas can be as pedantic as the best of them while also having some skills in diplomacy to help woo the more sensitive and less rigorous to a technically correct perspective. There are benefits to be had in studying the quirks of different instruction sets.

without Richard Stallman, GNU/Linux distros wouldn't exist, freedom wouldn't exist in computing(therefore in most of ours lifes, don't you value freedom?). and "open source" was created by some members of the free-software-movement who didn't agree with its philosophical views and only wanted its practicality and better way of development (so "open source" also wouldn't exist). the GPL2 is what keeps the linux Kernel safe. he should be leader of fsf

I like GNU and its utils and its well-made commands. GPL is also great, examples of GOOD free software: zsnes (the BEST and most NOSTALGIC SNES emulator), PPSSPP (BEST PSP emulator), redream (BEST dreamcast emulator), KDE (best desktop imo), GNOME (also good), gimp, krita and etc etc. they're all in GPL, many free software are the best in quality. tor is in BSD license BUT it's also free software, if richard didn't start free software movement, free software in other licenses (such as in BSD) also wouldn't exist (btw I'm using tor, thanks for not blocking me >_<;*)
