Blog Entry HTML Impressions of Syria (2005-02-28 to 2005-03-03)
by Richard Stallman published Mar 03, 2005 last modified Jul 12, 2010 05:08 PM
In late February, when I mentioned to people in Europe that I was soon going to Syria, they were worried for me. They thought that the tension resulting from the US decision to blame Syria for the assassination of Hariri would somehow make visiting Syria dangerous.

It's not the Gates, it's the bars
by Richard Stallman published Apr 20, 2008 last modified Jun 18, 2015 04:38 PM
To pay so much attention to Bill Gates' retirement is missing the point. What really matters is not Gates, nor Microsoft, but the unethical system of restrictions that Microsoft, like many other software companies, imposes on its customers.

Lest CodePlex perplex
by Richard Stallman published Oct 05, 2009 last modified Jun 29, 2010 12:04 PM
Many in our community are suspicious of the CodePlex Foundation. With its board of directors dominated by Microsoft employees and ex-employees, plus apologist Miguel de Icaza, there is plenty of reason to be wary of the organization. But that doesn't prove its actions will be bad.

Mac OS X mistakes and malfeatures
by Richard Stallman published Sep 28, 2009 last modified Jun 29, 2010 12:04 PM
I have said in speeches that Apple could forcibly impose software changes in Mac OS X, just as Microsoft can with Windows. I heard this in the Mac community, but there is no published information that confirms it, and I now believe that I was misinformed. There is no evidence that Apple has installed software changes without the user's permission.

Blog Entry HTML Moors, Christians, and no Atheists (2005-04-26 to 2005-05-09)
by Richard Stallman published May 09, 2005 last modified Jul 12, 2010 05:24 PM
A whirlwind trip around Spain in late April brought Stallman to places such as Granada, Ourense, Vigo, Galicia, La Coruna, Madrid, Castellon and Valencia. In La Coruna and in Castellon, he met with Computer Science students. Madrid's Fundacion Conocimiento Libre (Free Knowledge Foundation) named Stallman an "Honor's Patron" and invited him to give a speech there. He visited Spain coming directly from Sofia, Bulgaria, and he leaves immediately after for Bologna, Italy. After Granada I stopped for one day in Madrid, where I participated in a protest against software patents. There was a protest at everyuniversity in Spain, and I read that 15,000 people participated.
