I keep wondering if that's a cause of confusion.

Why does the Linux kernel, GNU, and the rest of userland *have* to be
done "the UNIX" way??

I keep hearing this assertion, but neither Linus Torvalds, or RMS /seem/
to support it's requirement.
Could you expand on why this is a requirement from the people that
produce's point of view??


Kind regards
