To my simple mind, seeking a boundary between GNU and Linux seems
difficult and really unnecessary. The Great Divider, it seems, is free
software, free exhange of experience and understanding.

In a world where Indecency can be tolerated if, but only if, it is
properly traded for money, or, (more to the point) where second rate
software is peddled by sheer brute force, the idea of free software
would seem like yet another pathetic, beautiful dream, too good to be
true. But then projects like these, GNU and Linux among others, prove
beyond reasonable doubt the incredible power of that concept.

Freedom will have to be defended on a great many frontiers in the next
few years to come, programming freedom is just one of them. There will be
real enemies to fight before long.
