Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "This follow-up to the previously published article 'Ubuntu: Derivative or Fork?' takes into account most of everything that has been posted as a reaction to the first article to present a general opinion and compare them with facts derived from various resouces. You'll see that peace can be achieved between these two, and ultimately any GNU/Linux group out there."

"What has this world become when people actually have aversions against something people have fought wars to have in the past."

I have nothing against freedom. I have something against the misuse of that word, for example in order to create a binary divide in the software world by categorizing it rigidly in "free" and "non-free".

Please try not to use this kind of rhetoric: "The GPL is about freedom. If you don't like the GPL, you hate freedom". That is just the same (I apologize for having to use this metaphor in this context) as the "if you are against the war, you are against America" arguments we hear.
