Dear Mr. Stallman,
Fuck you and the high horse you rode in on.
The mainstream media are a _caricature_ of the societies they pretend to represent, pandering to the extremes as the middle ground love to have something to point and laugh at. Said media do NOT speak for everyone.
Most of us are quite capable of buying Apple products without believing the late Steve Jobs to be some kind of cult religious figure. I don't genuflect and cry hallelujah whenever my MacBook Pro boots up. Nor do I run out and buy the very latest fruit-themed gadget just because it's there.
I've been using—and programming—computers since the early '80s, so I'm well aware of your own cult's particularly twisted logic that places technology for its own sake at the centre of IT, rather than users. And I want no part of it.
Extremists and fanatics often don't realise they are extremists or fanatics. These people are dangerous, regardless of the field they are fanatical about, be it religion, technology, or business. Jobs wasn't a fanatic in the way you are, Mr. Stallman. Jobs was certainly *singleminded*, which isn't quite the same thing. He was a "design and business nerd".
The _media_ have suggested Jobs invented everything singlehanded, but Jobs himself never made that claim. The media caricatured him and did all that entirely without his help. If you watch his keynote speeches, you'll know damned well Jobs was never shy about giving credit where it was due. For all his flaws, and he certainly had plenty, Jobs was no blinkered extremist.
The very fact that you appear to have bought into the media's caricatured portrayal of Steve Jobs is clear evidence that you're nowhere near as clever as you think you are.
