    I apologise if this has already been posted about. It's on the Technology page.

    I admire RMS for his ability to stay dedicated and literate over time in his efforts. It was a nice write up; I am glad it was put up.

    Nice article!!
    I have a love/hate thing with RMS. I read something by him and I grind my teeth thinking, WTH. I read other things and he makes me smile again.

    Whatever my thoughts, he has been solid in his opinion for 20+ years and no one can fault him for that.

    Thanks very much for posting this Xkutzy. A great read in this week of "isn't Bill wonderful?" Microsoft propaganda. The perfect antidote for me. Hats off to Mr Stallman.

    Nice to see the BBC put this up. Usually, I feel that they're slightly biased towards proprietary software when I watch Click Online etc.

    Stallman on the BBC!!

    I thought the article was a bit one sided, then I saw the author......

    Re: Stallman on the BBC!!

    Stallman is an American. Why is "behavior" spelled "behaviour" when he wrote the article? I realize "behaviour" is proper in England, but an English person didn't write the article.

    It's not that big of a deal, but it's somewhat weird.
