If you read Planet GNOME and some of the mailing lists, you'll notice
that many developers use the term "Open Source" and call the operating
system "Linux", instead of GNU or GNU/Linux.  Some of them were even
excited when a popular non-free software was relicensed recently,
allowing easier installation by the users, but still remaining

If the core developers and project participants do not value and stand
firm behind the ideals of the GNU Project and the Free Software
Movement, you cannot expect that these ideals will touch the hearts of
other people, particularly the "minority" groups in question.
