    Default RMS: De Icaza Traitor to Free Software Community

    If you don't like personal, blog-style reporting, you might want to skip this item. A few days ago, during a speech at Software Freedom Day in Boston, Richard Stallman has, at least in my book, crossed a line that I thought he would never cross.

    A plague on both their medieval houses. "Traitor" versus "God's creatures".

    It could be argued that De Icaza has indirectly broken this forum's rule about religion, but I wouldn't care to comment.

    I personally don't like both of them. RMS with his out of touch ideology and De Icaza with his MS fanboyism

    For an alternative view iTWire - RMS comes under attack again I actually don't find either author well tempered with any sensible balance. One is a little too warm and fuzzy with MS/Novell and the other a little too anti MS/Novell... So with both articles I think you can see the middle ground.
    Man first, have a try at Info, have a look at Wiki, if all that fails Scroogle!!!!!
    If I've helped click on the Rep button I don't know what it does but it sounds cool.

    I think Icaza's "god" comment was completely appropriate when dealing with a largely unhinged religious fanatic like RMS, whose credo is "there is no God but FLOSS, and me its prophet".
