Richard Stallman (from meeting him in Melbourne a few years ago) is a very
interesting, but abrupt person. He has mentioned that he has to be like that
in someways to champion the Free Software Movement (and don't mention Open
Source in front of him). He holds fast to his beliefs - little things like
him preferring Pepsi and not Coca-Cola, to big things like how all code
should be Free.

What ever happens, he is very entertaining, educational, and inspiring. I
hope you are all open to his personality.

And to use one of his jokes - Don't mention vi - as vi-vi-vi is the editor
of the beast.
