Hi Mr. Ajith
I am shocked at the way you have interpreted my quest for ever improvement.
According to your interpretation, all the CRITICS carry some kind of
infiriority complex ? Brother, i am just asking all my friends to improve. I
will quote Richard Stallman's mail posted on fsf-friends, where he says that
common user has to be taken serious care of.
I have failed to understand why cant we take criticism in the right spirit.
Are we so closed in our thinking? Friend i am not bothered about what has
been achieved by FSF. I am really curious on how we can improve more.
I am very proud of what has been achieved by FSF and am equally aware of
where we are lacking. Now please dont tell be that we are perfect. THERE IS
A LOT OF SCOPE OF IMPROVEMENT and I am doing my bit for it in 3 projects at
GNU. My criticism has been taken very well at the global forums. Our Indian
fourm is the only place where some people are taking a negative view of it.
Brothers please cool down, this is a quest for improvement not any kind of
i would be really proud to have someone from FSF-India contribute a
mainstream or futuristic project and make it to GNU/Linux OS. Be sure i am
working on some projects myself.
At the end, It is really easy to judge and comment, but really difficult to
contribute. lets worry about contributing. Be sure i am doing my bit.

Do Richard Stallman and GNU ask us not to praise and be aware of what is

areas free software is better than
proprietary one. Just think about the recent virus attacks on NT servers
Apache fared better.
