The GPL is not a shrink-wrap license, and it is unlike almost any other commercial software license. The GPL grants you extra rights you do not normally have. If you don't agree to the GPL, you don't have the extra rights. Most licenses, including shrink-wrapped EULAs, take away rights you normally have. The difference between the two is fundamental.
