    YOU are the instigator, I merely call you on your bullshit. Please point out where I defended Stallman's view on proprietary software (which is what I mainly disagree with him on).

    You need to look up the meaning of trolling, a good starting point would be a series of posts on Phoronix made by user yogi_berra.

And stop comparing him to Bill Gates or his actions, he's not even in the Top 100 wealthiest men. But, hey, if he keeps shares in the industries he helped create or shaped (Pixar-Disney, Apple) he's a demon! And if I highlight this, then decency goes out the window - because Free Software and GPL... well, something.
    This is something that always amazed me. Jobs runs the most profitable software company in the world and yet he's not one of the wealthiest guys in the world. Compare him to a real d-bag like Zuckerberg and Jobs really does come off quite well.

    Nokia doesn't manufacture components. Nokia buys them from Samsung, Toshiba and Texas Instruments. Therefore, Nokia has nothing to do with them.

    Absolutely I can. I can even fathom it, but I can't "fanthom" it.
    Phantom. My bad. Jesus.

    Fathom means measure, phantom means ghost, or to mentally image something.

    Apparently it is you that has a hard time understanding what moderation is and what bias is.
    Moderation is lessening extremes. Apple is a little extremely out of place on a FLOSS website, and just a company. Given how much extreme attention Steve Job's death gets, and Ritchie doesn't, it's only moderate in nature people combat the attention of a CEO.

    Now, how does one objectively "fathom", when one is engaged in the very thing one needs to judge? Earth to you; you can't.

    Dude, he just volunteered to moderate out the spam here. You should be thankful for that instead of trying to silence him.

    So what? I volunteer moderation on a bi-daily basis on /., where mod-points seems to come flying at me out of nowhere (15 on avarage).

    Guess what I'm not (and cannot be) doing while moderating a story?

    I HATE this Apple fanboyism. Not because Apple is succesful, but because it's (at least in my mind) absolutely ungrounded stupidity and followism.

    PS: Maybe it's a personal problem of mine that I want to correct every single thing and this is just really pointless maybe, by I can't stand it.
