    Ok. I think I am missing something important here.
    How do you distinguish a software that was written by GNU people from 
    the software, that just uses GPL license?

See for the explanation.

    Well, if this is the case, I believe more effort should be spent for 
    propoganda. Like graphic banners for instance.

Could you be more specific?  If you give a concrete suggestion
I can think about it.

    For instance, some parties create CDs, which they don't make immidiately 
    available from ftps, and force people to buy GNU/Linux this way. Do you 
    think it's legal?

It is legal if they provide source code as required by the GPL.
The page should answer
all your questions about this.  If you have a question not answered
there, please send it to me.
