That's quite right. Any suggestions of "integrating" the free, open 
source code of GNU/Linux with Micro$$oft's proprietary code looks naive 
at best. I cannot help but emphasize that GNU/Linux is *not* just 
another technological project - it is also a philosophical and 
political one.

That is it.
