I doubt 90% of any desktop code is GNU. David Wheeler's counts for Red Hat 7 showed around 65% as having GPL or LGPL licences. Not that this is all GNU code either - since the kernel, web browser, X, KDE are not GNU. For embedded systems using BusyBox, even binutils may not be present - I would expect glibc to be the only significant sized GNU code, and that's 1/4 the size of the kernel.
