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??

In this interview he makes it clear he does not think the entire Linux system has to be done "the UNIX way".


1984 was not meant as a blueprint for
democratic governments.
