The OS kernel is a major component of any operating system. Some people even 
defend that the kernel is the 
OS. So that must count for something.

Well, if they are putting together an operating system and they already stated 
that the kernel of their 
operating system will be GPLed, then what's missing? If they happen to put up a 
non-GPLed window manager does 
that mean that their OS ceasses to be based on GPLed code?
