Hmm, this smells believable to me, but how do you know this? Are you thinking of (for example) the Apache Foundation as "old UNIX/BSD guard" and GNU Classpath/GCJ as "Linux Users". I know the X story in more detail and I guess that one sorta rings true, since the deliberate addition of "old BSD license" style GPL incompatability was the straw breaking that particular camel's back. Although I rather suspect OpenBSD would have tossed it out, along with many others.
Perhaps I'm just doubting how much you can consider FSF-style worldviews and development groups as conjoined with Linux users. Which I suppose is a boring old saw, although it will probably end up being very important over time.
