1. Linux and the GNU system by Richard Stallman


[...]

Unfortunately what he said (afterwards IIRC) is not quite the same as
what he _did_.

From what he says you would expect config.guess to do something like:

        if (kernel detected == linux)
        {
                if (user tools detected == gnu)
                        report system as lignux / linux-gnu
                else if (user tools detected == bsd)

                ... etc.
        }

What he actually did was:

        if (kernel detected == linux)
                report system as lignux

AFAIR it was what he did much more than what he said which caused the
upset.
