OK, this is a really silly argument and I have tried to keep out of it
but .... does anyone even know how much "GNU" software is in OpenMoko?
I would assume they are using busybox like every other embedded
machine. While GPLed, I do not believe that it is GNU program.
Dropbear ssh (another common embedded app) is MIT-style licensed, etc.
How much GNU software must be on the system to qualify as GNU/Linux?
