Now I see.  If so, I think we need to critisize it in public media,
and inform our community not use it.

I think RMS offered a nice idea when he was in China last May, i.e.
make a list or table list all the so-called "Linux" distributions,
and index the distances of them to our pure GNU/Linux by marks,
and publish the indexing result on

According to Linux Journal, May's issue, there are 188 distributions
now, so I think this work could be a little bit time consuming, but
really worth to do now.
