Ok alexander,

But without FSF we probably wouldn't have Linux. At least it won't
be as functional as it is today. There are billions of dollars worth
of GPLed software available to every one of us.

Uhhh... "...probably wouldn't have Linux" ?????????

When Linus decided to license Linux under the GPL in 1991,

386BSD was already written along with complete standard C libraries and
a compiler.

"Although not released until 1992, development of 386BSD predated that
of Linux. Linus Torvalds has said that if 386BSD had been available at
the time, he probably would not have created Linux.[see n.7]"
