   I use Linux, not GNU, BSD, or other Unix-based operating systems,
   and want to release programs under the GPL.

Linux is just a kernel, using it without any operating system is
impossible.  GNU is one operating system that works with Linux, and
there are some embedded versions too.

   Version 3 is being discussed now, at  It would be nice
   if modifications to the GPL were allowed, and comments on the line
   about modifications being banned would be helpfull.

Allowing modifications to the GPL would allow people to make versions
of the GPL that would remove a users freedom, so it would work against
you.  I.e. you could modify the GPL into being a non-free license, and
still call it the GPL.
