Open Source guru wants Linux renamed

"The Free Software Foundation (FSF), headed up by open source evangelist Richard Stallman, has called for Linus Torvald's operating system to be renamed 'GNU/Linux', rather than just plain old 'Linux'.

In a move which has met with predictably mixed reactions from the Linux and open source communities, the FSF has released a document outlining why the system should undergo the name change." (Ed: Do they do this stuff on purpose? Talk about pushing buttons - calling RMS an open source evangelist is like calling The O'Reilly Factor a platform for animal rights activists.)
