googling on ofb rms interview returned this

Did you notice this update/footnote

'RMS provided us with this update on GNU/LinEx: /The developers told me that GNU/LinEx included only free software, but after this interview was published various people have checked it and found non-free programs in it. I therefore cannot recommend GNU/LinEx at present. I hope that this problem will be corrected./'

debian aims to create a free software distribution and

( the meantime as RMS complains) actively distributes/promotes non-free software too.

doesnt need to have far reaching aims like rms. dont
compare a distribution to a visionary.

Feel a bit sorry for the visionary who is still waiting for the day the complete free (and stable) system with an attitude against non free software arrives?

Best regards,
