You weren't at the RMS talk last night then.
I doubt there was a person there that didn't leave feeling guilty about
calling what they used "Linux", instead of "GNU", and feeling shame for
using terms like "Open Source", when in reality it means "I don't want to
mention principles, ideas and human rights like 'helping people by sharing
software', and 'being allowed to share is not as important than having
something that is cheap and reliable', because such things scary business
I felt so guilty, I had to buy the GLIBC reference manuals, and a tshirt
as a form of plenary indulgence.
