If you are not willing to abide by the GNU then you have the rights to not use Linux.


Quite untrue. The GPL is nothing more than a statement that the end user of a piece of software has certain rights with regard to the source code. It very explicitly has nothing to say about what the end user does with that software.

Not quite true.

http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl.html

"All rights granted under this License are granted for the term of copyright on the Program, and are irrevocable provided the stated conditions are met. This License explicitly affirms your unlimited permission to run the unmodified Program."

My bold.

BTW, since there are no conditions in the GPL on the permission granted to run the program, then one's permission to run the program is irrevocable.
