    When you say "and friends" do you mean other Unix like operating
    systems ?
    Yup, you know BSD, Linux, Solaris etc.. i'm just reading up on it now, thanks!
    BSD and Solaris are a bit more than merely "unix like."

    When i say UNIX like, i just mean clones of "the" AT&T UNIX that they are always acusing people of stealing source code from. Hence "GNU's _not_ UNIX" makes it clear that it's not a copyright infringment.

    But, If GNU is not UNIX then what is it? Well... it pretty much _is_ UNIX!

    If you think i'm wrong, here is my logic for saying so: Would you also say that FreeDOS is not DOS or PC-DOS is not DOS, because they don't contain any source code from MS-DOS? Sure it's DOS! It's a clone of MS-DOS clone.

    I know that BSD & Linux are not byte-for-byte binary compatible, but there is no need to split hairs over closeness to true UNIX.

    Well, the idea is that BSD and Solaris true UNIX derivatives where as the GNU project bears no relation to the other systems. Not meaning to split hairs, but I was under the impression that you could legally call BSD "UNIX". I'm not familiar with all the mumbo jumbo over there with the open group.
