After calling Richard Stallman's stand on Ubuntu as childish, Jono bacon, the Ubuntu community manager has issued an apology for what he said in his personal blog post. Here is what he says in his new blog post titled On Being Childish; An Apology :
As such, Richard, I apologize whole-heartedly to referring to your position in your post as ‘childish‘ and I continue to have great respect for the work you do to encourage and grow software freedom around the world.
This came after an attacking response by Jono a few days earlier where he said :
But in his apology post, he seemed to have cooled down as he goes on to say :
It was wrong of me to refer to Richard’s position as ‘childish‘. Quite possibly the most significant reason why so many of us respect Richard for his lifelong body of work is due to his clarity and commitment to his view of freedom, and although there is debate about the approach in which he articulates these views at times, it was nonetheless wrong of me to describe his position as ‘childish‘; he is not a child, quite the opposite.
While there is still no official word from canonical on this controversy, the argument between Jono and Stallman with Jono's apology now have created enough heat for netizens to discuss about this topic.
