I agree, RMS is right, and people are hypocrites. Jobs was an EDIT: evil winner.

H_TeXMeX_H,

While you're certainly entitled to your opinion and we're huge proponents of free speech here at LQ, that kind of sentiment really isn't in line with the spirit of LQ (or Open Source in general, for that matter).

It may not be in the spirit of LQ, but RMS being the father of FLOSS, and me supporting him ... that's not against open source.

Whatever, I guess I'll say no more on it.

Well I agree the last sentence isn't exactly of much value. But, I have to agree with the first completely. It kinda bothered me, hypocrisy, lack of honesty, cult, hype, complete ignorance about the passing away of someone way more important to the industry...but in the end it's just how things are, and as many have said Jobs was interested in things being that way, as it would result in better selling of his products.

He was another entrepreneur, just with all that buzz surrounding him, which he helped create and maintain. I too feel it's better that he isn't anymore in the game, but at the same time, legions are behind to fill his place, so...

Call me a zealot but I have to agree with RMS.

As to jobs being a "loser" on that I disagee completely.

Alright, fine, I'll change 'loser'.
