Unfortunately in matter of hardware support, Linux is definitely the
best selection for now.

Lot of people try to get rid of GPL code just because of the license.
See OpenBSD and FreeBSD which have switched to clang. They even had a
special gnu directory for easier removal for those who wants to do
proprietary stuff with that their systems.

I completely understand the idea of driving away from GNU/GPL when you
really want to provide flexibility and opensource to the mass. To me GPL
is only useful for users, not for developers.

My $0.02.
