Re: GNU

I respect your opinion, but the GNU sometimes seems a little too demanding. Lots of people, corporations put time, effort and money into the Linux kernel and most of them are content to have it called Linux. If everybody who contributes to it gets their name or initials attached, it's going to be a long winded title for an OS.

One thing I wish folks would understand that this isn't my opinion, it's GNU's. People bash GNU for a variety of reasons, but no one in this thread has shown that they actually know why GNU believes that it is within their right to ask for credit. They merely repeat a laundry-list of what they've heard others say, because bashing ideas is a lot safer and rewarding to one's ego than coming up with new ones.
