    From the article:
    Unfortunately, the Linux community spends too much of its energy on things such as nomenclature (like the name GNU/Linux versus Linux)...
    Amen. *Get over it, guys!

    Ok boss, sure why not. So what is the OS's name? ;D

    I agree, though. While it is good that people know if they are using GNU/Linux or Linux (yes there is a diffrence, just like the diffrence between Darwin and GNU/Darwin except I don't belive there are any non GNU related linux distros yet) it isn't something worth splitting up to sides about.

    Heh, fuck it, people are going to use shortcuts, and drop parts of thenames...


    Like 'windows' is actually "Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition", but what do people call it? "Winxp home" who the fsck cares? what about Red Hat? the REAL name is "Red Hat Linux 7.2" but people call it redhat 7.2. Does it bother people, fuck no... give it a rest...

    No problem. It caught my eye, so I thought that I would post it. They usually screw all things linux up anyway, so it's good to see that someone didn't!

    In some ways, yes. It would open up the market to a lot more users. And, as far as GIMP, well, some professionals just prefer Adobe products. It's not that GIMP is bad or subpar, it's just that it's not Adobe. Only time will tell.
