Well, I guess RMS won't be coming to speak any time soon. ;)
(Maybe if GNU wanted to buy the domain "glugod.org" for us...)

The GNU Project faces a major obstacle in promoting the ideals of free
software among users of the GNU system: these users mostly don't know
the system is GNU, because they think it is "Linux".  User groups that
call the system "Linux" contribute to this obstacle.

For that reason, I don't give speeches under the sponsorship of Linux
User Groups.  I think that if a group wants me make the effort of
giving a speech, they should at the very least give the GNU Project
equal mention when referring to a system which is more GNU than Linux.

If your group would like to become a GNU/Linux User Group, and get
listed in http://www.gnu.org/gnu/gnu-user-groups.html, then I would
give a speech at the earliest possible opportunity.

(If you like, you could become a GNU User Group and cover both
GNU/Linux and GNU/Hurd.)
