this here is just a freaking operating system. Put the guiding principles
somewhere, no problem, but give me a chance to ignore them <G>

It's perfectly fine to have people not 100% agree with the principles,
and not sign them. And of course the community won't close its doors tp
these people when this happen: contributions are always welcome :-)

That being said, the guiding principles help explain the identity of the
project, and of the community behind the project. That's why they are
important, imho, and having people support them will strenghten our
identity.

Just to explain to you why some people think this kind of things is
important (while for you, it's not that important): quite some
contributors feel that they're helping making the world a better place
by contributing to free software. It's not just an OS for those people.
