Thanks, Miguel. Whilst I have had some, ahem, disagreements with the dotGNU
people in the past, this last attack goes beyond the pale. It also
demonstrates to me that you and Ximian have a far better understanding of
Free Software and the writings of Mr Stallman than does the dotGNU board.
Not surprising, really, since you know him personally. Personally, I think
they're just jealous and want your post on the FSF board...

And, they can complain all they like about the steering committe having been
"annointed" by RMS, it won't change the fact that dotGNU is falling further
behind Mono every day.
