Surely not. But then, Linux's success has proved you wrong.

Linux's use makes GNU to be known as well. Also, you claim that it took
people from the Hurd, when they weren't on Hurd to begin with...

Linux brought people and developers to Free Software, people that didn't do
that just for Hurd's sake.

you want.
