Free software founder, Richard M. Stallman is glad Jobs is gone | ZDNet

Ran across this article about Richard Stallman’s reaction to Steve Jobs passing:

People think they have a choice when they go proprietary, but Richard Stallman’s opinion is worth something. The Android has shown that systems don’t have to be totally proprietary to be cool. I got an iMac for my birthday last year and I like using it, and it is friendly, but there are some things that I cannot have or that are harder to get or implement and I don’t appreciate that at all. So Jobs’ legacy is not 100% warm and fuzzy, and Stallman, as irritating as he can be to many, deserves more kudos than he gets, in my opinion, even if he is an atheist.
