Much of the audience were corporate types, who didn't know that much about free software, and were definitely not seeming inspired by what I can only characterise as whining about what to anybody sensible is a fairly minor one. Certainly something that matters to RMS and the FSF, but it shouldn't have been in that speech.
Stallman was pretty amazingly rude to people asking questions, and I know a couple of people who wanted to ask questions but were put off by his rude and aggressive responses to other questioners.
I don't think RMS is a good head for the community. Someone also needs to tell the FSF that 'iBad' and so on are lame puns that aren't going convince anyone that's not already convinced!
