>despite the fact that im on a project that forks gnu.
GNEW doesn't fork GNU. What GNEW does is educate people; enabling them
to fork GNU software (and any software in general). Very different
philosophy. GNEW is about education. GNEW is about breaking the
information and skills monopoly the corporations have over the free
As chief GNEWsance, I have no intention of forking anything myself.
The point is to treat the underlying cause of the illness and not the
symptom. GNEW is designed to be the catalyst that enables people to
liberate themselves. GNEW educates people to operate their computer
and write/fork whatever software they want. GNEW extends beyond
software itself because education isn't just about software.
GNEW is pro-Stallman.
GNEW is anti-FSF.
GNEW is anti-GNU.
Freedom is not a product. The FSF and GNU try to turn freedom into a
product. GNEW will never stand for this.
