GNU is Not Unix


UnixZone is carrying an interesting opinion that one of Free Software's strengths is the ability to say NO. Companies seem to feel that they must honor every wish of the (larger) customer, whether or not it makes technical or long-term sense. Free Software authors on the other hand can say no, if they feel the request would not improve the overall design of their product. From my own experience I agree. What about you?
