Re: empowering users?
"the GNU initiative isn't about empowering users, it's about empowering users in a way that stops them disempowering their own users."
This is so true and a lot of people do not realize this.
It isn't about happyness, butterflies, LGBT, unicorns and all that stuff (there are other projects for that).
GNU is actually a set of restrictions that are necessary for open computing to survive.
People need to stop thinking of themselves and more about the better solution for the project and the idea as a whole. RMS has done far more good than bad so he should absolutely stay.
