Why me?  What have I done wrong? 

Let me remind you, in case you have forgotten, you fought well and fought hard :)

Then Richard Stallman(RMS) responded with

I happened to agree with you Mr. Cox.  Sadly you appeared to give up?

Have you conceded defeat and now use GNU/Linux?

One thing I admire of people, is persistence and sheer courage that despite all odds against you, you should never give up, like the Turkish National soccer team

$ uname -o
is all Mr. Oliva and RMS want to hear.  It is already hard coded into many Linux Distributions.  It is apparently not enough though :( 



I apologize for this, but I simply do not want to agree to name the system $ uname -o, it is my right and freedom to simply say Linux.
