GNU philosophy[was Re: Hurd on VMware ?]
This question has touched on philosophy whether we wish it to or not.
This is the reason I stopped using Xemacs and started using emacs even
though I prefer Xemacs. I am not perfect as far as use "free" software
is concerned and my job requires me to use "non-free" operating systems
and software as well. As far as my debian system goes I am slowly
working towards a "free" system there. I am not even perfect in that
regard at this time.
Without the fsf and gnu philosophy, Debian, linux, the hurd might not
exist as free software today. I have the utmost respect for the fsf and
gnu philosophy. Enough said.
