Richard Stallman continues to inflate himself in this
online interview:

> In 1992, the GNU system was complete except for the kernel. (Our own
> kernel project, started in 1990, was going slowly.) In February 1992,
> Linus Torvalds changed the license of Linux, making it free software.

> The kernel Linux filled the last major gap in GNU; the combination,
> GNU/Linux, was the first free operating system that could run on a
> PC. The system started out as GNU with Linux added. Please don't call
> it "Linux;" if you do that, you give the principal developer none of
> the credit. Please call it "GNU/Linux" and give us equal mention.

The arrogance of this takes my breath away.
