Wow. That might be one for the quotes file:

"GNU ... was of the early GNU/Linux system. GNU ... included non-GNU"

Well, that certainly explains a lot. If you define GNU as "anything
which might be found on a Linux distro including non-GNU packages",
your position starts to make a certain twisted sense. Only one problem
with that: if it wasn't GNU, it wasn't GNU, which means, Richard, you
are crackin' smoke and may need a vacation. 19 years of hard effort is
a long time, have you considered retirement? You've certainly earned it.

Oh, by the way, have you updated the GNU kernel pages to reflect the new
proper name: Linux/Hurd? I'd really appreciate it if you could get to that.
