GNU, GPL, Open Source "If we want open source software to take off on the desktop, we need to reduce the amount of choice and concentrate our efforts into a single app for each purpose. Choice is one of the drawcards of open source software, but if it is ever to receive adoption at any recognisable level on the desktop, there needs to be less of it. More is less and less is more."

Open Source != Linux

Why should I say that, if the comments are emphasized toward Linux as the omnipotent free system? Which isn't true at all, it's perhaps a "new" point in opensource history but not the beginning nor the movement at all!

It depends on the point of view, how to interprete the comments. My point of view is, that Linux is in fact only a small part of opensource and the majority is GNU.
