Miguel de Trotsky

Finally: The traitor of the revolution has been found!!!



The conversation shifted towards Microsoft’s new Open Source labs, and in response to a question by Owens, Stallman noted that Miguel de Icaza “is basically a traitor to the Free Software community”. He also added that De Icaza is a Microsoft apologist, hence his involvement in the new Open Source labs does not inspire confidence.


Now that this pig has been cornered, the future will be bright like the sun!

 I’ve noticed that Slashtards became less fanatic over the years. It’s not that they died out though, it seems that the cultists just moved to new grounds. OSNews seems to be the new place to be for them.

Some quotes from the OSNews thread:

“We can’t compromise with closed source and hardware without specs but for now we use it. However we should do something to stop this trend. The world would be only black if Stallman and FSF didn’t work hard (like many other developers). He doesn’t want a b/w world. He wants a totally white real world.” [The creepy part here, is that the commenter wants a “totally white world” too]

“Yes but isnt MS at the very pinnacle of the evil empire ?! No one can deny that ! MS serves MS, not people. Free GNU software serves freedom !”

“The software industry would have rolled over this movement long ago if we didn’t have RMS doing his best (and that’s a lot!) to keep the focus on freedom.”

“A month ago I would have defended Miguel and by proxy Novell, but they have an unholy and extremely tight grip on the licensing of Mono. It is basically very, very scary as to the licensing restrictions they put on to the Mono runtime and how they are willing to milk the iPhone developer community for 4 times the amount that Apple will require to use Xcode and Objective-C, just to use C#. They could easily add the “static linking exemption” to the LGPL license used to the Mono Runtime, as many project do, but they want to make money – plain and simple. Very sad.”

hmm? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mono_(software)#License

“RMS has always been like that. Polite, and up-to-the point. He always explains everything he says, patiently, calmly, logically, and backs it up with arguments. Unlike his opponents. He never gets involved in personal discussions and stupid flamewars like this. When people call him a jerk, he just silently ignores it, like a true gentleman”

Yeah, right! Can it be any more personal than comparing proprietary programmers indirectly with murderers? (http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/my_doom.html)


Good to see that the Stallman-faithful are still alive and kicking. And now that Sno…eh .. Trot.. Eh, Icaza, right, Icaza, is cornered, everything will be ok.

Today’s hymn:

Join us now and share the software;
You’ll be free, hackers, you’ll be free.

Hoarders may get piles of money,
That is true, hackers, that is true.
But they cannot help their neighbors;
That’s not good, hackers, that’s not good.

When we have enough free software
At our call, hackers, at our call,
We’ll throw out those dirty licenses
Ever more, hackers, ever more.

Join us now and share the software;
You’ll be free, hackers, you’ll be free.

Hymn in 2020:

Friend of fatherless! Fountain of happiness!
Lord of the source code!
Oh, how my soul is on
Fire when I gaze at thy
Calm and commanding eye,
Like the sun in the sky,
Comrade Stallman!

Thou are the giver of
All that thy programmers love,
Full software repositories twice a day,
clean distributions to compile the kernel on;
Every coder big and small
Sleeps at peace in his flat,
Thou watchest over all,
Comrade Stallman!

Had I a baby,
though, this is hypothetical, because having babies is unethical,
He would have learned to be
Faithful and true to thee,
yes, his first line of code would be
“Hello Stallman!”
