Unixfication II

| My OpenSolaris 2008.05 write-up struck a chord with a bunch of folks in the
| community because the very title itself “What Ubuntu Wants to Be When it
| Groups Up” was taken as an affront to Linux’s maturity and the hard work and
| milestones accomplished by Ubuntu project and the Free Software community’s
| efforts. While I will claim a mea culpa in that I wanted to title the piece
| with a headline that attracted attention, that was not the intended message
| here.

| The FSF has always referred to Linux as GNU/Linux. This isn’t just Richard
| Stallman being bitter — this is the official name of which the Debian
| distribution, which forms the basis for Ubuntu, is referred to. It might be a
| little bit of a stretch, but what if the OpenSolaris kernel and many of its
| other components were to fall under the auspices of the Free Software
| Foundation? Surely, Sun would have to give up some control, but if you follow
| the natural course of things, GNU/Solaris is not out of the question.

More on why ZDNet cannot be trusted. Headlines "that attracted attention," by
his own admission. Some Microsoft or UNIX trolls used his piece to attack
Linux.
