What about the freedom to decompile open source software that others will not give you the code for because they added things that take away freedoms on the most common platforms (i386, i686)? I dont see RMS standing up for our rights in that area, he just wants to create code not make sure others cant take it from him. The best decompilers are all very commercial and cost thousands of dollars a seat. in fact there was only one I could find that actually worked at all and it still sucked in ways that i really should not have. RMS doesn't have his priorities straight but its hard to belive that this is not intentional; cant help but wonder who is paying him or the rest of the open source community off not to have a really good decompiler as every time such a project starts it very suddenly stops being supported/usefull and fades into the black. If you really support open source, help get us a good x86 compiler that will at the very least convert to C; The current options just dont work and I think thats intentional.
