Re: Debian on the shuttle

It does say debian (GNU/Linux...is that ok Mr. Stallman??) is going to space
so you do have to expect the guys from debian, as any normal human, to talk
about themselves more and just mention Linus.  Basically I don't see any
wrong doing, therefore no reason to point fingers and yell, but it would
be nice to see Linus get some media attention.

All and all, as I have said before, it dosen't really matter whos name is 
on it as long as it says Linux.  We are working together and because of that
some of us will get talked about at times and others at other times.  We are

World domination fast!

Just my 2 cents.
