I wonder if RMS actually smokes weed. Despite his looks, ideology, and alleged body odor, he's not exactly a hippie--that's a UNIX beard. He codes HURD and doesn't afraid of anything.

Did he ever actually finish HURD?

It must be nice to be Stallman. Have a bunch of wealthy people paying all your bills and living a consequence-free life as saint of the religion he cooked up to scam suckers out of their money.

Like LRH and Scientology but without all the little boy molestation.

>the religion he cooked up to scam suckers out of their money
The Church of Emacs is a joke, and its principle philosophy is one that significantly impedes making profit from software. I'm not sure how it is possible for this 'religion' to scam anyone out of money.

>Did he ever actually finish HURD?
No one will ever finish HURD. One day, perhaps, there will be a microkernel implemented with independently running modules for subsystems with profound parallelization and whatnot, but only after the HURD code is long forgotten and obsolete. It's like the Analytical Engine of FOSS.

Stallman lives off the donations of wealthy patrons. Stallman doesn't know what its like to work for a living, which is why HURD will never be finished. It, like most of his "projects," are nebulous ideas that intentionally will never be finished because that would make his free money stream dry up.

In short, Stallman is the antichrist and you're either one of his acolytes or not. Choose wisely.

How ironic that it was finished and announced by others, and in a form that is very different from its original intent.

At this point RMS is getting money from people just because they've always given money to RMS. Will RMS be able to find new patrons once his existing patrons die off? If not then he's going to die penniless in the gutter.

Yeah, way to not bother to actually stop and think about anything that was written and go off on an unrelated tangent.

He's the one who claims he lives like a student.

Students can't disappear constantly to fly on trips around the world. The only ones that can either have very well paying jobs or massive trust funds.

The latter are exactly the kind of entitled jackasses you're raging against. RMS's trust funds are the teats he suckles on 24/7, that pay every last bill he dreams up of incurring.

RMS is nothing more than a figurehead in your religion. He provides you nothing of value yet you leap at the opportunity bathe his feet. You are enabling the very trust fund baby behavior you rage against to continue.

Try watching less Alex Jones. That shit is clearly rotting your brain.

Closet Furry 18/03/07(Wed)01:17 No. 779415

He created an ideology that free always means better and having protections on your content so that you can profit off of the value you provide other people is evil because money's involved. If no one pays developers and everything's for free the quality of computers would go way the hell down because the only people who would code are hobbyists. That's why open source software is usually way worse and no one wants to admit it because it goes against their ideology. The ideology, then, functions as a veil that separates people from reality (this isn't exclusive to RMS)

I mean, come on. A lot of linux distros can't connect to printers, have issues connecting to wifi, can't run essential office applications, can't run advanced creative applications, and a host of other issues. It's computing trapped in 1990: nearly three decades ago. People like RMS are anti-capitalist and ironically anti-progress.

You gotta respect the guy, though. Traveling around the world would be a pretty sweet lifestyle even when his ideas ended up hurting the entire entertainment industry

My Archlinux-running computer connects to my printer over wifi and I use it to make all manner of documents, presentations, and web pages; play games made for Windows; watch videos in more formats than you are aware exist; rip DVD and BluRay movies; emulate nearly every console from Atari to PS2; and shitpost on 7chan.

Plus, my desktop is three-dimensional >>779216, so I can do four full-screen tasks at once without losing sight of any of them.

>RMS did emacs, gpl, gnu
RMS got other people to write emacs and gnu software then claimed credit for it. GPL was something he and his friends came up with one night while smoking pot, RMS was just the only one to remember it the next day. But the ultimate goal of gpl was to con people with more money than common sense to give him a lot of money to make gpl a reality, which he did by getting a lawyer to work pro bono to actually write the gpl. At which point he started grifting the suckers again for money to defend the unproven gpl in court, which had a spotty track record until he paid a lawyer a tiny fraction of the money he had collected to close loopholes and generally make it into a legally enforceable thing. At which point the cycle of needing money to defend it in court began anew for each iteration and somehow he always found a way to gather far more money than needed to actually do that.

In other words, RMS is a leech, has always been a leech, and will always be a leech. Why you can't see this is beyond me but I suspect it involves spending too much time orally pleasuring yourself.

Checked just out Wikipedia:

>It's time [to] explain the meaning of "Hurd". "Hurd" stands for "Hird of Unix-Replacing Daemons". And, then, "Hird" stands for "Hurd of Interfaces Representing Depth". We have here, to my knowledge, the first software to be named by a pair of mutually recursive acronyms.

It's simple. Those who pay to his lawyers etc are weak. Or they may be manufacturers of hardware that doesn't really care about what code runs it.

Corrected that for you, kid.

That idea has its basis included, therefore it is an argument, you might have read people asking for "sources" before.
Now this on the other hand--> >>779489
That has no source to be used as basis or foundation for the idea, no way to prove its validity, therefore is just an opinion, probably one based on the inability to use a computer.

I guess he can, he used to do that for a living in IBM iirc.
He has stated in his website (on the "how I do my computing" part)that currently he doesn't do programming, but codes in emacs.
He probably just delegates development like Torvalds. And pays for the doritos with the royalties from his books.

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Weed,
is in fact, THC/Weed, or as I've recently taken to calling it, THC plus Weed.
Weed is not an illicit substance unto itself, but rather another dank component
of a fully functioning THC substance made useful by the THC crystals, cush
utilities and vital bong components comprising a full roto as defined by Snoop Dogg.

Many stoners smoke a modified version of the THC substance every day,
without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of THC
which is widely used today is often called "Weed", and many of its users are
not aware that it is basically the THC substance, developed by the CIA.

There really is Weed, and these people are using it, but it is just a
part of the substance they use. Weed is the shit: the leaf in the substance
that allocates the drug's properties to the other people that are smoking with you.
The leaf is an essential part of this illicit substance, but useless by itself;
it can only function in the context of a complete smoke out. Weed is
normally used in combination with the THC illicit substance: the whole drug
is basically THC with weed added, or THC/Weed. All the so-called "Weed"
dealers are really dealers of THC/Weed.

>another mediocre, at best barely used, linux distribution
He built the operational basis of every mediocre, at best barely used, linux THC/Weed GNU/Linux distribution, by giving it away, motivating a generation of software pirates and hackers to legitimize taking what you can for free and doing what you want with it by sharing tools and techniques and developing their own vast library of content by distributing the work to anyone. It was the logical conclusion of shareware that had user-supplied content getting to be as popular as the program itself. You don't remember any of that; you probably pay for apps on your phone.
