"I believe GNU turned into an initiative at some point, to the frustration of 
some GNU Hackers itself. While the fight for freedom is a neverending one, I 
believe the GNU Project should have celebrated its successful end some years 

The question in relation to your post is: What are the precise goals
of the GNU "initiativ" (my terminology, explained in [1]) and how can they be 
measured and reached? What is having a "free operating system"?

One that is is "available", or is "easily" availble, what does "easy" mean?
