He does not do all the work by himself, are you forgetting all the other developers that send patches and help out in some way or another?

He was the original creator and yes he supervises the work, but he is not the sole developer!  Other people here deserve some credit as well.

In the meantime, while following this thread and finding sites, I found one that asks 

 Where Do You Stand in the GNU World Order?

The topic is GNU/Linx?

If found this page regarding Stallman

and a page for Linux from awk to sed

They are a bit old, but I hope that users here can read them if you have a chance.  Interesting reads.
