Stallman's criticism

Stallman's criticism

I'd like to correct a misapprehension in the article concerning
Stallman's role: his criticism was against Qt's original non-free
license! When Trolltech converted from the QPL to the GPL, Stallman
congratulated them and retracted his concerns, though he still preferred
to cheer the GNOME camp because they had had to take up the mantra
from scratch, and were considered part of the GNU team (remember,
GNOME stands for GNU Object Model Environment -- even if the
corporate-types shunned Stallman from the GNOME board, which is forever
to their discredit).

GNOME stands (stood?) for GNU Network Object Model Environment.

With the demise of bonobo the Network part seems to have been lost :/
