GNU, GPL, Open Source Now this is interesting. We see what is at its core a very valid concern, in practice not a problem to anyone, and, thanks to the tone of the press release, close to trolling. The Free Software Foundation Latin America is complaining about something that has been known for a while - there is some non-Free code stuck in the Linux kernel (mostly firmware). A valid issue of concern from an idealogical viewpoint, but sadly, the tone of the press release turns this valid concern into something close to trolling.

Maybe they could spend their time better by actually accomplishing something and getting HURD
(which _is_ an ideological project) out the door

FSFLA is not FSF, it's an independant organisation which speaks for themselves.

(I can't help it, the fsf brings out the troll in me)

No, I think it's just because you are a typical douchebag who relies on ad hominem attacks because you have no real arguments.
