Not only do they have cooler names but you also get to piss off RMS, wich is always a plus.

Isn't that a rather immature attitude? Now, I may not agree with RMS on all things, but one cannot denigrate his contribution. Without him, Linux wouldn't have become what it is today.

Of course, if you don't care about Linux, you wouldn't care much about RMS. Still, the GPL is a brillant piece of work; whether you agree with what it stands for or not, you can't deny the impact it's had on software development and licensing.
