Free software as envisioned by RMS is about free software philosophy. Promoting such to Microsoft at Research Center says that RMS does have balls and is just a good thing that he has done, one amont many others.

He was also in Russia promoting free software philosophy:
Please remember that Linux kernel would never be free without Linus hearing that talk by RMS at Linus's university.
If anybody wish to do something for freedom in software, do such talk yourself.
Spreading fear, uncertainty and doubt on Internet is not useful.
GNU project and also every free system distribution as sponsored by FSF shall be apolitical, and shall stick only to free software philosophy and free software politics and nothing else.
GNU system maintainers, like Hyperbola maintainers shall be themselves in their expressions on Hyperbola pages remain apolitical and not take any side of any kind of politics, including feminism, or whatever one thinks that one shall support for the time being, as those are not GNU and free software related issues and are rather dividing community and not bringing people together.
Before some days I had problem with Hyperbola and Emulatorman will remember that. I had a serious problem as I was in business meetings and I was thinking that my sound has to be repaired urgently. So I went to Guix IRC channel to see if I could quickly change to Guix. As a GNU user I was surprised to be faced with some feminism politics stuff, that I neither support neither not support, it is simply irrelevant to me as I do not wish to be involved in such politics.
I was faced with feminism stuff which has nothing with GNU project.
If one reverts to Red Cross organization, Red Cross is not asking you if you support feminism or not support, or if you are nazi or anti fashist, those issues shall remain equally away and stay out of GNU projects and any FSF sponsored system distributions.
Instead of getting help with the system, as many people depend on my system to have their own lives, as I am to pay my people salaries and their expenses, I have been faced with feminism stuff. It was more important for Ludovic Courtès to defame and slander RMS without facts, then to promote free software. He has no speech nor mentioning about free software on his own website, and is not free software activists, he is programmer, but not activist.
I really hope that maintainers of Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre are to remain apolitical in every other aspect but to free software on Hyperbola pages and GNU pages. Their private views on third party websites are their own, but keep Hyperbola friendly, just in accordance to Hyperbola code of conduct which is written in much better manner than Guix.
Keep straight to free software philosophy.
I am also of opinion that if any free system leader cannot stay apolitical, that such is not fit to run GNU software project which is providing software for everybody for whatever reasons, see freedom zero.
Let us not judge people by their opinions, let us respect RMS opinions and stick to facts, as he is just person like everybody else, with the difference that he has done many good things for this world and freedom in computing.
