GNU, GPL, Open Source "This famous controversy is there ever since I became aware of operating systems known as GNU/Linux. The GNU General Public License, which is used by Linux as well as most GNU software, armors both characters. GNU/Linux is the term coined by the Free Software Foundation, Richard Stallman and people who support FSF, for operating systems composed of the FSF's GNU software and the Linux kernel; such systems are generally called Linux."

You should say that to Stallman then. He seemed a bit angry when the subject came out in the last speech he gave at my university.

PS: I have to say I AGREE with Stallmans requests... yet it is probably the one thing I agree with him.
