In the last of my Richard Stallman trilogy, as promised, I present Richard's self-proclaimed alter ego.
At the end of both of his talks in Hawaii, RMS closed by transforming before the audience's very eyes from man to minor deity: St IGNUcius from the church of Emacs.
I bless your computer my child.
The good Saint explained that in the church of Emacs, contrary to popular belief, using vi
editor is not a sin...its a penance. He did warn, however, that it was true
that vi vi vi is the editor of the beast.
According to the teachings of St. IGNUcius:
To join the Church of Emacs, you need only say the Confession of the Faith three times:
There is no system but GNU, and Linux is one of its kernels.
People sometimes ask if St IGNUcius is wearing an old computer disk platter. That is no computer disk, that is my halo. But it was a disk platter in a former life. Unfortunately, no information is available about what kind of computer it came from or what data was stored on it. However, you can rest assured that no non-free software is accessible on it today.
Saint IGNUcius says: Some people don't realize that Saint IGNUcius is Saint IGNUcius's way of not taking himself too seriously. Therefore,
Warning: taking the Church of Emacs (or any church) too seriously may be hazardous to your health.
