Just calling something like that in an official place doesn't make
your more philosophical or not. I've seen more than once that people
talk about Debian/Linux and Debian/Hurd while they weren't talking
about linux-image-*_i386.deb and hurd_*_i386.deb.

Just calling something free software doesn't mean you understand it.
