PC World最近对Richard Stallman进行了一个采访,结果这次采访大叔语出惊人。

首先说明一下Stallman何许人,知道的跳过这一段。

Richard Stallman,GNU的创始人以及带头大哥,自诩为Free Software领域的精神领袖,主要作品有GCC和GDB。其创立的GPL成为很多开放源代码软件的首选发布协议。另外此大叔自画像为一个头戴光圈,胡子头发分都分不开的上帝形象,同时经常背着个破包装着个疑似圣经的东西,像传教士一样四处游荡,因此本人称其为伪上帝。

这段采访的全文见http://www.pcworld.idg.com.au/index.php/id;211669437;pp;1

其中最值得注意的,也是被大多数媒体和眼球关注的是这么一段:

Linus Torvalds told he thinks “the GPLv2 is a superior license,” but there’s “something like 50 different open-source licenses, and in the end, the GPLv3 is just another one.” Does Linus collaborate with you or GNU on free software development?

Stallman: The fact that Torvalds says “open source” instead of “free software” shows where he is coming from. I wrote the GNU GPL to defend freedom for all users of all versions of a program. I developed version 3 to do that job better and protect against new threats.

Torvalds says he rejects this goal; that’s probably why he doesn’t appreciate GPL version 3. I respect his right to express his views, even though I think they are foolish. However, if you don’t want to lose your freedom, you had better not follow him.

可以看出Linus只关心Linux应该怎样被使用,而Stallman则非要其完全跟着GNU走,Linus不想上GPL3,于是Stallman大叔就有想法了,开始鼓吹:如果你们要完全的自由,请别跟着Linus走。全然不顾现在全世界都是这样看待GNU和Linux:GNU/Linux,非要搞分家,还忘记了GNU自己的元配Hurd到现在还在难产。

这就好像当年那个时代稍微有点想法都要被打击成什么“左摇”和什么“右摆”,动不动上纲上线。难怪越来越多的人把GNU看成是共产主义了,二者真的越来越像了。

其实最近关于这方面的新闻挺多的,好像都是从那个FreeBSD Core Team的newslatter开始,逃离GNU的声浪一浪高过一浪,越看越有意思。突然有个想法如果把这些集合起来弄个像草莓周刊一样的东西倒也不错,足够消遣了,回头想想关于这方面的技术资料实在太缺乏来自中文群众的声音,况且又很难像纯技术一样保持绝对中立,于是暂时作罢了,不排除以后闲下来继续搞得可能,不过既然搞就搞得更面向圈内人士一些,太过娱乐就不严谨了。

    中文技术类群众,你先掰手指数数有几个吧.

  2. 有幸间过该大叔一面,还有合影,呵呵!
    不过英文太烂,问问题的时候被bs了……
