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.

The very idea, real or not, of taking the GNU out of Gnome is just silly, as in step away from the keyboard, we're gluing your hands together now silly. That's a matter of identity, raison de etre, and not turning into OME which looks just plain stupid. Do that and I'll go Mac-only out of embarrassment - just watch me.
