True or False:  More people know what Gnome is than Know what GNU is?

I think it's probably false.  Certianly some one can not use linux for
long with out hearing about both.  AS for Windows/Mac folk, I imagine
it's possible for a person to use either system for their entier life
without knowing anyting about Gnome and FSF/GNU

All that said, it is probabaly time for the Foundation to make it known
one way or the other:  Does Gnome rule it's self, or does the FSF have
veto poweres over the Gnome Foundation and Gnome it's self?

This is not desicion on the mention of non-free software in the summary,
but weather or not gnome is alowed to govern it's own future?
