RMS paints Linus as a GNU haiting , GPL abusing hypocrit, and he sounds
guite convincing until you read the bits about Linux insisting about the
whole system being called Linux. Anyone who knows anything about the
histroy of linux know how much (nay, little) attention Linus payed to
the whole distribution revolution and how he doesn't much like to get
The reason that Linux didn't change to GNU/Linux of LiGNUx was that it
wasn't catchy, and he's right - it sound really TLAish and probably
would have hindered it's general acceptance.
