You take this blabla much to serious. "Open Source" for example isnt just
an idea, a good idea like BSD licences, GNU etc, but first of all it is a
label. Something for the "No logo" book. This labelism of the different
initiatives has nothing to do with the central concept. Maybe this is why
I dont like Linux. So much chaos and desktop cosmetics. I stay with
FreeBSD. And I like GNU.
