    You appear terminally confused. The purpose of the GPL as defined by its
    authors is not commercial success, world domination or making zillions of
    dollars - it is keeping the software protected by that license "free" in
    terms of liberty as measured against the set of freedoms to
    run/modify/etc they discuss in the licence document.

    The fact this is a good license for making zillions of dollars, producing
    good software and the like is either incidental or a logical result of the
    protection of freedoms depending upon which views you believe.
