Gnome Over the weekend, there has been a bit of a ruffling of the feathers over in the GNOME camp. It started with complaints received about the content on Planet GNOME, and ended with people proposing and organising a vote to split GNOME from the GNU Project.

Agreed. I may disagree with some of Stallman's antics and points of view. But at least he believes in something, some organizations would benefit from having some purists at their hearts. And I think GNU is one of them.

I get a hoot to read the comments from people who trash Stallman, and I wonder how many of them have a similar track record regarding the organizations they have helped create... I think a lot of people trashing him, some doing so by using gnu-related tools, are just too chicken sh*t to actually stand for something.

Agreed. In fact, Darl McBride is the only person I can think of who is willing to stand by his ideals and beliefs anywhere near as strongly as stallman, and not let the rest of the world, or in fact reality itself stand in his way.
