If it hadn't been for the inclusive approach promoted by the GPL, it's unlikely that Linux would have attracted so many collaborators. Such is RMS's contribution to Linux.

In light of the BSDs, that appears to me to be a pretty bold assertion.

What I'm trying to say is that "Linux" may not have become what it is today, but some other equivalent project probably would have - with or without the GPL.
