    Default GNU Grep & Sed: Fallout Within The GNU FSF Camp

    Phoronix: GNU Grep & Sed: Fallout Within The GNU FSF Camp

    It seems there's some dissenting views finally being pushed into the center of the table for discussion about the GNU project and Free Software Foundation. This comes as the maintainer of GNU Grep and Sed has announced his resignation from the projects...

    One does not simply tease Fallout players with a Linux port in the title without major disappointment after discovering it's not what we thought.

    Playing Fallout is less likely to result in violence than working with sed and regex.

    Oh god damn it ... right in the English comprehension.

    Seriously though, I'm a Fallout player myself and the game didn't even occur to me until you mentioned it.

    GNU seems like such a relic of the past now.

    Not so much as a "relic" but more of a jersey in need of retirement! In sports terminlogy it sounds slightly less disrespecful...

    In all seriousness, Linux would not be what it is today without the GNU project; that's a fact that will always be true no matter how much GNU software we actually use in the future.

    Except of course it's software is default in pretty much every Linux installation out there, not to mention being supported or coming straight out of the box in other operatings systems like the BSD's, Haiku, Reactos, etc

    Of course your response was not a reflection of reality, only your dislike for GNU, FSF and GPL.

    While I didn't at all think this was a port announcement from the title, the title did make me immediately think of Fallout. ... I'm pretty sure any use of that word would though.

    That's the point. Don't use this word in the future if it's not related to the greatest game ever made, please.
