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.

Thom you write:

and
I should've made it clear in the teaser that I wanted to talk about RMS and the FSF, and not about GNOME and the GNU Project


I think you throwing in RMS actually started the name-calling. This seems to always be the case here on osnews, once someone mentions RMS the name calling starts. I don't believe that you did not anticipate this.
