Why is the question interesting? Nobody has said anything about this and most people hera are aware how GPL works. Yes, it is possible to write programs in a Linux system that does not become GPL:ed as long as they are not statically linked to a GPL:ed program.

They are distributing GPLed software and they have to provide the source code.
