Would you please be so kind as to write "GNU/Linux" when you talk
about this system?

    Yes, but what I was trying to say is that if two programs exist with about 
    the same functionallity and the one is released under theGNU-GPL and the 
    other one under a license that permit distribution of binary-only copies, 
    I would rather use the one released under the GPL.

I agree -- I like to promote GPL-covered software when feasible.
But the other free licenses are also basically ethical, so we
can use the programs released under them.
