Gnome In the item we ran yesterday about GNOME and the GNU Project, one aspect got snowed under a little bit. It turns out a claim made in the iTWire article about the role a blog post by Miguel De Icaza was false, and even though the claim wasn't ours, I did repeat it, and therefore, should correct it too. I also need to offer apologies for not framing the opening of the article clear enough - had I framed it better, a lot of pointless discussion and name-calling could've been avoided.

Another issue I'd like to touch upon is the whole GNOME-GNU divide - if such a thing even exists. My point with the article was not to summarise and talk about all aspects of the thread in question - I wanted to talk about how I feel about RMS and the FSF, because I know a lot of people feel likewise. Of course, a lot of people feel different, too, and that's fine.


It is all okay. At least here we can discuss and flame whatever we want. That is to say, at least here the editorial doesn't push GNU/FSF-style censorship, exclusion, and demonization of alternative views.
