Gnome In the item we ran yesterday about GNOME and the GNU Project, one aspect got snowed under a little bit. It turns out a claim made in the iTWire article about the role a blog post by Miguel De Icaza was false, and even though the claim wasn't ours, I did repeat it, and therefore, should correct it too. I also need to offer apologies for not framing the opening of the article clear enough - had I framed it better, a lot of pointless discussion and name-calling could've been avoided.

"As a result, a lot of people probably thought that the GNOME-GNU issue was the main topic of the thread, and this is simply not the case.


It was the main topic of discussion, or at least it should have been. The topic of discussion was a post in a long thread proposing a split from Gnome and the GNU for various reasons discussed. I certainly didn't misread that at all. I certainly read most of that thread.
"

Agreed. It was the subject of the article after all...

But it wasn't the core of the discussion in the mailing list, Stallman's argument was.
