And one more thing (I know I'm talking too much here, sorry). You can't build the kernel without GNU's tools, so even if you don't have much GNU software on your system, you still need to thank them for that compiler and toolchain of theirs. Show me a free system that was compiled with any other toolchain than GNU. If you use such a system, then you have no need to even consider GNU as deserving any credit for your OS. Of course, you also then don't have much relevance in a discussion about GNU-Darwin.
