I decided yesterday to remove my "Master" ratings from all people who develop Unix-like systems. Call me silly, but I felt this was a neccessary action. (Please don't remove your certifications on me before reading the rest of this diary entry)

The reasons for doing this is that I feel that a true Free Software Master must realize cloning such an old system is not particularly innovative. I'm sad to say, but the only people who've realized doing something of their own is good is Microsoft, Be Inc and similar companies. While I don't really think their operating systems is any better than (for example) GNU/Linux or *BSD, they do try to make something else than just clone existing systems. (Well, maybe not in the case of Microsoft. ;-)

Anyway... I truly hope you understand me better now. If not, you're very welcome to contact me.
