Do you have a non-GNU Linux system? Remove GNU coreutils, and then boot your system. Fun, innit?
It may be replacable, but it isn't being replaced.
As to the retarded part... only retards call others retarded.

I've read time and time again people (mainly RMS) harp on and on about this point to others, quite often to the detriment of the real subject of discussion. That is to say that by obsessing over this minor point of terminology the discussion was sidetracked into irrelevance, and the actual important discussion was forgotten. This does not help the FSF/GNU in any meaningful way. Forcing others to adopt their terminology does not advance their real goal of software freedom.

Whether this is better or worse than GNU/Linux is a pretty open question and a good conversation for friends over beers. :)
