Re: OT: Does involve Linus
Maybe if they called the OS Gnunix instead of Linux Linus would be more likely to decry the name?

Linus *occasionally* doesn't offend people. RMS seems to revel in it. His message is basically sound, but his delivery is offputting. (To wit, his rants about saying "Linux" vs. "Gnu/Linux"; it just comes off as petty and eye-roll worthy.)
And, since I'm proud of this, I say this as an EFF.org member.
