While I appreciate the very impactful contributions of both Linus
Torvalds or Richard Stallman, in both case outwheighing by far what I'll
ever be able to produce, to the Free Software world, this can't be
accepted as an excuse for their behaviour.

Whatever one did, whoever one is, no one is nor should be essential to
any community, otherwise to me this community has a great problem. Some
day in a future I wish them far, Linus Torvalds or Richard Stallman will
eventually die. The Linux Foundation or the FSF will anyway outlive

As far as I'm concerned, I would rather have a hundred nice guys who
each one does 5% of RMS work in, than having 5 RMS in.

With best regards,

It's far easier to fight for one's principles than to live up to them.
