RMS' comment confirms what I stated earlier in reaction to the first
published draft: the FSF does not understand embedded systems. As I
had explained, the fact that you can actually run the kernel won't
mean that you'll actually be able to use any of the device's
interesting hardware. Nothing the FSF can put in the GPL will change
that -- lest it stop being a license about freedom.
Again: right cause, wrong venue.
