we're rather the entire GNU project die in a flood
I mean, I'd prefer that the platforms were more open myself, but supporting them is simply vastly more important to my personal and professional interests than in supporting GNU.
Nobody is stopping you from writing permissively-licensed software for those platforms if it turns out that the platform vendors impose draconian conditions on everyone using such platforms and the only way to get code in front of end-users is by going along with it all. Quite why GNU and copyleft licences should cease to exist so that you can go ahead with this is something I don't follow, however.
