"The controversy centers on Richard Stallman's keynote
address on July 4. While I have been unable to find a complete
transcript of the address, two parts of it apparently generated
controversy: Stallman's remarks on why Mono and .NET (C#) should
not be used in free software, and his "Saint Ignucius" comedy
routine, in which he made a comment that was condemned as sexist.
"Defenders of Stallman suggest that the accusation of sexism is
an underhanded response to his remarks on Mono. However, while that
may have been a motive in some cases, there is little evidence that
"Chani Armitage, a KDE developer, blogged about the sexism. KDE
is a desktop where Mono development is in its earliest stages and
the average developer extols the Qt toolkit too much to be overly
interested in another one."
