Are the people who PROMOTE
Linux with empty, uneducated promises and lies, or will use ONLY GPL'd
software, or consider it ONLY good if its gnu JUST AS BAD as
monopolistic software entities?
Think about it, vaporware, empty promises, ours is the only system you shall use.
If we assume your premises to be true, GPL
software is still much better. The difference is
that with a company monopoly on software, control
is in the hands of a few. With a communal
monopoly on software, control is in the hands of everyone.
This is why for example democracy is considered
better than dictatorship, even if it in some situations
is not as efficient.
If the GPL license stated that only those who are members of the Communist party can distribute GPL software, then you'd have a point. That's not the case though, anyone can distribute GPL software.
