It's not the Gates, it's the bars

Everyone loves Auntie Beeb, here is one more reason to love her more. While the rest of the media regularly pumped stories about Bill Gates departure from Microsoft BBC NEWS published this article by RMS. Perhaps the wordplay of word 'Gates' in the title says is all.

Excerpts from the article

To pay so much attention to Bill Gates' retirement is missing the point. What really matters is not Gates, nor Microsoft, but the unethical system of restrictions that Microsoft, like many other software companies, imposes on its customers.

Gates may be gone, but the walls and bars of proprietary software he helped create remain, for now
