Let's all work out how to make a working, stable, legal distribution that
can't be crippled by retracting license terms later.

As for the politics... ignore the loonies.  They have an imaginary enemy and
most people just want a working OS

These politics weren't striped out of the OSI they were transformed and
re-communicated as practical and level headed thinking. Just because
someone is talking about freedom doesn't mean their a raving loon who
toes the FSF party line, they might just be concerned for their own
practical application of technology.

No need to jump down their throat about it David.

be exorcised (as the FSF may have you do) but no need to go wild with
'politics is bad' memes.
