SubjectRe: Nvidia and its choice to read the GPL "differently"
Date
    It is the ultimate in hypocrisy to ask others for something you aren't 
willing to do yourself. I, for one, will remind you of this every time
you bring up GNU/Linux in this list.

These two cases are similar, but not in the way you think. In both
cases a large structure that is basically GNU or of GNU has a
component that is Linux or of Linux.

So why do we treat them differently? In general, there's no ethical
obligation to cite each and every component of a larger structure in
the structure's name. But in the case of "GNU/Linux" there are some
specific reasons why it is useful and proper to mention "Linux" in the
name. See http://www.gnu.org/gnu/gnu-linux-faq.html#justgnu.
