"Indeed, one could make a fairly powerful argument that had Linux been released under a less restrictive license than the GPL it would be even more popular, as it would have been more suited to inclusion/merging with commercial products."

Good point. And had it been done entirely by the GNU, it would be mired in their politics. It's quaint to hear RMS talking "freedom" all the time, but he really needs to leave the 60s behind.
