Different days. I think it's good practice to spread out your
headliners, keep people coming back.

+1 to Andy's warning that Stallman will likely draw a big crowd, so be
prepared and allow for an extra long Q&A at the end. Also it might be
wise not to schedule any other sessions during the main portion of his
talk, since they may be under-attended as a result.
