Pretty much the most-used general-purpose editor under Unix-like
operating systems.

Care to mention an editor on Unix-like systems that would be used more

Take a look at the copyright notices.  GCC actually is mostly
Stallman's work, later enhanced by other parties but kept (c) FSF all

Which does not change that he (or was it someone else?) was paid by
the FSF for bringing a unified glibc into being (in order to stop
incompatible forked libc libraries being distributed with GNU/Linux).

Really, you should stop living in your fantasy world where the _facts_
suddenly are supposed to disappear because of some sneering.

Again: please read the copyright notices of most of the system
software on GNU/Linux systems (with the exception of the networking
stuff from BSDlite and utilities specifically interfacing with
Linux-specific kernel facilities).
