Re: [Savannah-hackers] submission of OWL\'s not Window

        Your project was approved. I suggest that you expand the acronym into
OWL's not Windows or gnuLinux since it's more accurate although it does not
quite match. The problem of comparing windows to linux is that you compare
an operating system with a kernel. Also it leads people to think that GNU/Linux
does not exist as such. 

        Thanks in advance,
