When I flew over to meet 'The Man' as he is known for a rare interview in his nearest Starbucks he said: "I've had it up to here (making cut-throat gesture at his lower lip). All this new-fangled stuff and new requirements just to run a blooming desktop is really getting my goat. Uthis and uthat, I just can't take it anymore. I've thought of stripping Slackware down to only Window Maker and FVWM like in the good old days but then I thought what the hell. It'll be fun to sit back for a while and watch (Editor: the users) bug somebody else to give them a workable distribution. Let them eat Chakra."
To repent he'll be joining the Dalai Lama and upgrade from Hippie to Krishna Punk. Later this year he will assist in bringing Windows 8 to the masses in China. He is aware this could potentially be seen as subversive action but states no malintent.
Back in his hometown, Ma Baxter, who's known little Richard since childhood, described him as a kind boy. "He always wanted the best for people, but sometimes he could get a little overzealous."
