I have always been of the opinion that the developer of the software gets to name it. Linus Torvalds himself also shares that opinion. He stated his position on this in one of his online interviews. He said "if you build it, you get to name it". So in my mind, Ubuntu is Ubuntu, Arch is Arch, Manjaro is Manjaro, and so on. The developers of these projects can identify it however they wish. If they want to call it a GNU/Linux system, then fine, and if not, that's fine too. I don't think of Ubuntu as GNU/Linux, or even Linux. To me, it's just Ubuntu. So i really don't care what you call it. The fact that there is so much debate and drama over how to classify a particular set of software is really petty in my opinion. I also think it's a testament in how far we have come in the Lin... GNU/Linux community. If this is really the biggest issue we have to argue about, then we're doing just fine. I frankly could care less what you call it. Just contribute and be part of it. What's in a name really? We all know what we're using. We don't need a bunch of toe-jam eating nerds reminding us every ten mins.
you can't prove any of them actually eat toe-jam...
There are many projects who support libre software through their contributions and some of those projects arguably deserve as much recognition as (if not more than) Gnu. Because DistroHunt holds a neutral stance in these controversial matters, we have elected to only use the term "Linux" when referring to ANY operating system which uses the Linux kernel.
BACK ON TRACK--- I am interested in knowing about the first post... Should it be included in the DistroHunt FAQ? Should it be re-worded, and if SO, how would you re-word it???Hmmm Maybe this could work:
I have not heard you mention Gnu or Gnu/Linux in any of the videos. WHY?There are many projects who support free libre software through their contributions and some of those projects arguably deserve as much recognition as (if not more than) Gnu. DistroHunt wishes to remain neutral in these controversial matters. Therefore, we have elected to only use the term â€œLinuxâ€ when referring to ANY operating system which uses Linus Torvaldâ€™s kernel.
