"GNU was founded long before Linus Torvalds started working
on what was to become the Linux kernel, and they had already
created a long list of the tools necessary for making an OS... All
these tools and utilities compromise a much larger body of code
than the kernel itself..."
"Now over to the detractors who claim that GNU is communistic or
anti-business. This is also as wrong as it can be. GNU has been
doing business based on its software almost from the beginning, by
selling tapes and CD-ROMs with GNU software and printed manuals.
They have also verbally supported and encouraged the establishment
of companies that make a living of supporting and/or developing
free software like VA Research, Cygnus and Redhat."
