The biggest problem I have with this is that the thought of this name
change didn't occur to you until six years after "Linux" was released.
That computation yields 1997, but I have been talking about GNU/Linux
for longer than that. Probably since 1995, or maybe before.
It's far too late...
It isn't too late for some people to change. Even since a year ago, a
number of people have started using the term "GNU/Linux", and I am
confident that more will do so in the future. It is never too late
for any person to start doing this--it is just a matter of whether
you believe it is the proper thing to do.
