If you want to know what it's like to be patronized by the FSF go to
www.windowmaker.org's devel mailinglist archive and read the discussion
about turning WindowMaker into the Gnome wm. 

I admire RMS very much after having read some of his stuff, but I
don't think I would personally ever want to have him as my boss.
