Why does it *matter* who gets credit?
It's part of the motivation to do something for the community. There are few totally unselfish acts in the world.
Next question: Why does the FSF think that the GPL contains an advertising clause to the effect that Linux (and indeed *any* kernel: cf "GNU/Solaris") *must* be named GNU/Linux, regardless of the project leader's wishes, even though advertising clauses are incompatible with the GPL?
