This is more freedom-related than Blag-related, but I found it pretty damn amusing ...

I was messing about with Ubuntu at work the other day, and decided to install the 'vrms' package from their repo.

(vrms is "Virtual Richard M. Stallman", which is supposed to scan your hard disk and report all the non-free software packages you're using.)

At the top of the list of vrms's output was the package 'gnu-standards' (the official GNU coding standards docs). WTF? Too funny. I don't know exactly how vrms works, but I'm thinking that it's maybe not the most reliable thing in the world.

Seems big brother like to me if I am honest. What next, serial numbers and automatic updates?
