Another mistake

Claiming openSUSE is based on Fedora is not his only mistake.

He always calls GNU/Linux "Linux" and while he correctly identifies Linus Torvalds as creating the Linux kernel he seems entirely unaware that, in fact, Richard Stallman created most of the basis of what is now called the "Linux" OS as well as the free copyleft licenses it now runs under.
