I'm not the brightest when it comes to the subtlties of the GPL but it sounds like these guys have found a way to charge other companies for extensions to open source. After all, they don't charge for the code, but for membership in a "co-op." As the co-op grows to 20,000 companies, they are being charged for kernel upgrades that the rest of us can't get.
On the other hand, if they are building apps on top of Linux, like any other commercial entity, then whatever.
