Actually (and this is my point of view),
Extremism always make smart people take off.
Stallmann is an extremist and I lost "faith" in this guy since the freebsd episode where he just got into a totally IDIOTIC and ridiculous thinking.
If gnome splits off GNU, depending on the license then adopted (which I think will be good anyways, because they are smart) I certainly will feel better.
Leaving GNU doesn't make you an MS bitch, it just make you out of a "I got a bigger one" war.
Sorry Stallman, After FreeBSD's episode, I'll never consider you as smart anymore, you proven the contrary.
