Then why didn't RMS insist that it be called GNU/Solaris? All Sun machines I saw did have gcc as their choice C compiler, and ran assorted packages from a collection of GNU (and other) software packaged for its awfull package system... What about DG/UX (Data General's Unix), where the official C compiler was gcc, as were the development tools, and AFAIR much of the userland also, came directly from GNU? That was the state of the art Unix system in the 90's, much as today it's a Linux kernel beneath essentially the same sort of mix of applications from a variety of sources...
