I just looked at www.gnu.org. Found lots of idealistic stuff that lots of
people have never read. The only distribution that I found mentioned
under "Links to Other Free Software Sites" was "Debian GNU/Linux".
Not Redhat, SuSe, Mandrake, etc, And not "GNU/LinEx". Maybe my search skills
are not great. Someone else should repeat my work and report.

If my result is correct, what are the implications?

I like Debian. I like GNU. I like Linux. I like Free Software. But what 
is RMS really intending? Did he really say what is being attributed to 
him? Who is in charge at www.gnu.org?
