Richard Stallman: 'Apple is your enemy'
Richard Stallman stands by his criticism of Steve Jobs in the wake of the Apple founder's death, the free-software advocate said in a recent interview with Slashdot readers. He also called for the elimination of harmful computing-related patents and advocated for preserving copyrights for works of opinion and art.
The FSF (Free Software Foundation) founder stirred up angry buzz in October 2011 with a post following Jobs' death:
Steve Jobs, the pioneer of the computer as a jail made cool, designed to sever fools from their freedom, has died. ... As Chicago Mayor Harold Washington said of the corrupt former Mayor Daley, "I'm not glad he's dead, but I'm glad he's gone." Nobody deserves to have to die -- not Jobs, not Mr. Bill, not even people guilty of bigger evils than theirs. But we all deserve the end of Jobs's malign influence on people's computing.
