And where would GNU be if it weren't for Linux?  I remember gcc and
glibc before Linux came along (and then there was RMS's ugly "lignux"
renaming attempt).  There's a large chunk of GNU software that has
received significan benefit from the Linux community.  A Linux kernel
with only software from GNU (as implied by the name "GNU/Linux") would
be pretty useless, so ignoring all the other software that goes into
making a useful OS is also rude.

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
