I only checked the first one, which they attribute incorrectly to rms,
"Linux is a copy of UNIX. There is very little new stuff in Linux."

The line was actually written by Larry McVoy:

http://www.ussg.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/0301.0/0972.html

and quoted by Stallman at the top of his reply:

http://www.ussg.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/0301.0/1156.html

in response.  Stallman says specifically "parallels," "follows," "compatible
with" instead of "is a copy of."
