How about naming it "Free Software Foundation" then we wouldn't get that Apple / Google rubbish.

You would need to pay for proprietary software in Linux.

Nope.
You're confusing commercial with proprietary.
Have you ever looked at the list of distros the GNU project won't endorse because of either their policies on or use of proprietary software?
Most of the well known ones...
