I currently have a disagreement with Linus, RMS, FSF, AT&T, Google and the Linux/UNIX developer world in general. While all of these people and organizations are great and honorable, I am disturbed by the naming convention used by (GNU/Linux) - UNIX Background Drivers.
If you are in a position to do so, please contact RMS, Linus, FSF , Google (and anyone else of UNIX influence) and let them know your feelings about these inappropriately named background drivers.
Please note that while I *believe* AT&T was one (there are likely many more) of the pioneering companies for UNIX, I don’t personally know just exactly where this naming convention got started. It should also be noted that while I'm *pretty sure* AT&T still uses UNIX, I don’t know if they still play an active role in its development. To be honest, I think RMS, Linus and the FSF do more to shape modern day UNIX than anyone else in the world.

naming convention solely indicate my preferences and are in no way
meant to harm or defame those that use/promote products with such
naming conventions. Jesus was sent to heal the lost and sick not to
