Re: How it should have been handled

I should add that I do not like Canonical, I am of the Devuan-type ... Debian with no trace of système d hacks and I think Canonical have betrayed the spirit of the FSF, as have Suse, Cygwin and others, by cooperating with Microsoft ... you know, the GNU guyz are there to replace proprietary code, not run alongside it, they wrote the whole userland stuff and I think their spirit should be honored ... says he who uses Cygwin, I know ... nobody's perfect ... but I could not stand Windows without that glass of ice water ... then again, I am glad to see Ubuntu/Windows still segfaults when you sneeze ...
