@Elizafox I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Meal, Ready-to-Eat, is in fact, GNU/Meal, Ready-to-Eat, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Meal, Ready-to-Eat. Meal, Ready-to-Eat is not a meal unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU restaurant made useful by the GNU coffee, shellfish and vital fruits and vegetables comprising a full OS as defined by the Food and Drug Administration.
@calvin *a full nutritionally-balanced meal as defined
@Elizafox Many foodies eat from a modified version of the GNU restaurant every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called "Meal, Ready-to-Eat", and many of its eaters are not aware that it is basically the GNU restaurant, developed by the GNU Project.
@Elizafox There really is a Meal, Ready-to-Eat, and these people are eating it, but it is just a part of the restaurant they eat from. Meal, Ready-to-Eat is the main course: the meal in that makes the bulk of the nutrition.
@Elizafox The main course is an essential part of a restaurant, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a fully balanced meal. Meal, Ready-to-Eat is normally used in combination with the GNU restaurant: the whole restaurant is basically GNU with Meal, Ready-to-Eat added, or GNU/Meal, Ready-to-Eat. All the so-called "Meal, Ready-to-Eat" restaurants are really franchises of GNU/Meal, Ready-to-Eat.
