If everyone had "full freedom" nobody would have any. Freedom and responsibility have to be balanced out to create a fair state.

Neither "too much", nor "too little" freedom is good.

Stallman doesn't program or even manage programmers anymore, and Torvalds is an amazing implementor, and still writes a little here and there.

It might have been a question 20 years ago, but not today.

Linus is smarter. He wears glasses.
>>
>>52943002
Linus writes beautiful code. He has published some side projects that he wrote all on his own and the code is just wonderful. He also lives in the real world while still maintaining his open source ideals and supporting himself through his work.

RMS is basically a homeless loser who hasn't made any real contributions in the last 20 years. He is still super butthurt that Linux beet HURD (but hey, HURD just got basic sound support in 2016!) and basically tries to claim Linux because Linus used GCC and the GNU coreutils. He survives on the charity of others and speaking engagements where he spouts his insane, paranoid, philosophy. Basically he won't be happy until all the programmers are homeless hackers like him and all the companies are shut down. How people are supposed to support themselves and their families in that scenario aren't things he has to deal with because he is basically a permanent grad student. He does make some good points about privacy, but for him, there is no middle ground. Anything that may reduce your privacy even the slightest bit (like movie recommendations on Netflix) is evil according to him, and must be destroyed. In a lot of ways he show classic signs of mental splitting, which is a classic symptom of mental illness. To top it off, when he does write code, he does so in the style of the awful GNU style guide which is a crime against humanity IMHO.

In June 2000, while visiting Korea, I did a fun hack that clearly illustrates the original and true meaning of the word "hacker".

I went to lunch with some GNU fans, and was sitting down to eat some tteokpaekki (*), when a waitress set down six chopsticks right in front of me. It occurred to me that perhaps these were meant for three people, but it was more amusing to imagine that I was supposed to use all six. I did not know any way to do that, so I realized that if I could come up with a way, it would be a hack. I started thinking. After a few seconds I had an idea.

First I used my left hand to put three chopsticks into my right hand. That was not so hard, though I had to figure out where to put them so that I could control them individually. Then I used my right hand to put the other three chopsticks into my left hand. That was hard, since I had to keep the three chopsticks already in my right hand from falling out. After a couple of tries I got it done.

Then I had to figure out how to use the six chopsticks. That was harder. I did not manage well with the left hand, but I succeeded in manipulating all three in the right hand. After a couple of minutes of practice and adjustment, I managed to pick up a piece of food using three sticks converging on it from three different directions, and put it in my mouth.

>>52944448
Lispers are unbelievable in sense they sperg out about superiority of their language all day erry day but in the end when they actually get something noteworthy done it is not in Lisp. Case 1: Stallman writing parts of Emacs in C to make it portable.
Case 2: Zawinsky hating Netscape for using C++ but that browser is the only product he is known for.

And I'm a lisper myself. Awesome language but holy shit is the community horrible. Just browse Lainchan for a while to see what I mean.

>>52945154
Its not autistic. When someone is autistic they have no friends, they kick holes in walls, scrape floors with knives, speak really really softly and effeminately. I've worked with these children. The vast majority are male, yes this is true

I like free licenses because they are made to prevent code to be "claimed" by proprietary software developers. i would find it better if there was no copyright on software and art at all.

If I draw a painting that's my property. I could sell it and make it someone else's property, but until then it's mine. Do you think it's not yours because of the tools you used? Like using keys / pencils on am editor/paper just makes it using someone else's tools?

I'd just like to interject for moment. What you're refering to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.
Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called Linux, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project.
There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called Linux distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux
