you can install these on pretty much any system... is my gaming machine running gnu/win xp? or did we use gnu/solaris at -xxx-?

this GNU narcissism is pretty annoying... where's the freedom RSM is promoting? the software is released under GPL and that's it. Nowhere in the GPL it says you have to call your project GNU/something.
