    Stallman sounds very cold, but regarding the technical he´s very right

    The thing about stallman is he's right on principle but wrong on tactics. The principle here is that all users deserve basic software freedoms, such as the freedom to access and use their data anyway they want. The problem is that his tactics of obnoxiously insulting everyone that is even remotely connected with proprietary software vendors doesn't help his cause.

    Users buy apple products because they're better than the "free and open" alternatives. The freedoms that are lost are outweighed by the improvement in usability of the things it can do. Stallman should focus on making better free software alternatives, instead of being so crass all the time.

    I see this response from many of people of apple users.
    I very talk about this from Iran.

    My friend send email to Stallman
    Hi Richard, how do you do?
    recently I had translated your note about Steve Jobs pass away to Persian. I have one question: what did you meant by fool in "Steve Jobs, the pioneer of the computer as a jail made cool, designed to sever fools from their freedom, has died." . you mean users whom are stupid or whom that does not know his or her rights with using software?
    please make some clearance here because this misunderstanding is causing a lot of negative hits on free software community. you can read the post here. (but of course it's in Persian)
    Thank you very much
    kind regards
    and Stallman response

    A "fool" is someone who lacks wisdom. It is not the same as being stupid. Being stupid means lacking intelligence or cleverness. A fool can be smart, and a person who is not clever might not be foolish.

    For instance, a person who calculates mathematically whether he can afford to repay a second mortgage on his house may be very smart and clever about how he calculates it, but he is foolish to consider the idea.



    I think that anyone who gives up his freedom for the attractions of an iBad is foolish.

    Please make some clearance here because this misunderstanding is causing a lot of negative hits on free software community.

    These people base their thinking on foolish priorities. Which is more important?

    * Stallman does not respect Jobs now any more than he respected Jobs last year.

    * Jobs and his followers are trying to take away your freedom.

    To a wise person, the second is very important and the first is insignificant. So why do they care more about the first? That is the essence of a fool.
    this main page talk (But in persian )

    Stallman is not a developer to better software. Stallman is Theorist of free software. and many people develop free software
    please first read

    I could not agree more with what Joeri has said here. In fact, Stallman’s principles will really add more to an already bright company in the future. However, his harsh tactics and cold attitude will never influence customers the way Steve Jobs did with his hris principles and tactics. Period!
