I'm not going to agree or disagree, but purely as background, remember
that the spirit behind _Linux_ has never been particularly idealistic.
Linus is a pure pragmatist and has stated multiple times that he chose
the GPL on practical grounds, not idealistic ones.

(For double clarification, this does not necessarily mean I personally
agree or that I think the Fedora project does/should. I mention it
entirely as a note.)
