Q 8. What is your opinion on RMS insisting calling Linux as GNU/Linux? ---------------------------------------- RMS is not calling Linux as GNU/Linux! He is calling the entire system GNU/Linux. Linux is a kernel of an operating system not an entire operating system. ( Note that you'll often see GNU/Herd when someone is talking about that system ). Of course Linux doesn't need any of GNU software. Just as GNU doesn't need Linux but why write new software or use some proprietary software? Both GNU and Linux are great.
