LXer: Is It Linux or GNU/Linux?
Published at LXer:

Noting that the issue seems to have died down in recent years, and mindful of Shakespeare's observation on roses, names and smells, I wondered if anyone really cares anymore what Linux is called. So, I put the issue to a number of movers and shakers in Linux and open-source circles by asking the simple question, "Is it GNU/Linux or just plain Linux?"

I'm with the "ayes", call it what you want...

or, why not: X/Wayland/KDE/GNOME/MATE/whatever else.../CUPS/etc,etc/GNU/ALSA/Linux ? Just to be totally fair...:rolleyes:

What's in a name ?
