No, it's not kernel only, it deals with the Linux Operating System. And
no, it's not a GNU/Linux user group either. We choose to call the OS
Linux, and we don't stop people from calling it GNU/Linux on the list or
at meetings and events, if they so choose.
To clarify in advance, I'm not interested in participating in a
discussion on the relative merits/demerits of OS names -- I've already
said what I wanted to say on that topic many years ago on this list.
Anyway, I have to get back to composing my next e-mail to this list on
some issue that I feel strongly about. How does "Indian Free Software
Activist Needs Cash to Buy Car to Popularise Software Freedom" sound? I
feel really strongly about that one, and I'm sure I can find some
friends on this list who would support me (specially the ones who live
nearby and hope to hitch rides).
