One thought on “The GNOME Journal, May Edition”

  1. I don’t want nitpicking but as i read the interview the first question was:

    “Could you tell us a little about yourself and your relationship with GNOME and Open Source in general?”

    And i asked my self “Open Source”? I thought GNOME was a GNU project and has somehow an affiliation to GNU and the FSF. For me the freedom part in Free Software (freedom to do what you want with your computer, freedom of speech, a free market,…) is really essential to me and probably to most people in the Free Software Community. “Open Source” doesn’t communicate this but “Free Software” does!

    I always feel a little bit sad if i see that such a high profil GNU project like GNOME seems to lose his “Free Software” focus and speak in official publications about “Open Source”. Even the Executive Director of GNOME speeks/writes a lot about “Open Source” instead of “Free Software”

    As i said at the begining, i don’t want nitpicking! Please don’t see this as an attack agianst anyone personal. I love GNOME and all the people behind it but the journal just gave me an opertunity to write down what i thought for quite some time now…
