Yeah so?

GNU is not some communist manifesto that some like to think it is.  In
fact, it is the opposite.  Its goal is to assure the freedom of
individual entitlement to protect the basic freedoms that drive healthy
capitialist market economies, not to mention sceintific discover, and
social welfare as a whole.  Accusing it of being like a large tech
company is positively naive.  Of COURSE it is like a giant tech company.
 It might well be the grandaddy of all tech compaines.

And for what it is worth, so are political parties in representive
governments.  They are invairably grinding machines.
