Hm?  Linux is just a kernel.  Granted, it has a compilation dependency
on GCC, but other than that, its development has been largely
independent of the FSF.  But it's not really much fun if you try not
running any GNU software on it.

I've seen some server that has been built in that manner: Linux, but a
BSD userland above it.  Shows that Linux works without GNU just fine.

But not my idea of the best I can get.
