I'm terribly sorry for interjecting another moment, but what I just told you is GNU/Linux is, in fact, just Linux, or as I've just now taken to calling it, Just.Linux. Linux apparently does happen to be a whole operating system unto itself and comprises a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Most computer users who run the entire Linux system every day already realize it. Through a peculiar turn of events, I was misled into calling the system "GNU/Linux", and until now, I was unaware that it is basically the Linux system, developed by the Linux project.

There really isn't a GNU/Linux, and I really wasn't using it; it is an extraneous misrepresentation of the system that's being used. Linux is the operating system: the entire system made useful by its included corelibs, shell utilities, and other vital system components. The kernel is already an integral part of the Linux operating system, never confined useless by itself; it functions coherently within the context of the complete Linux operating system. Linux is never used in combination with GNU accessories: the whole system is basically Linux without any GNU added, or Just.Linux. All the so-called "GNU/Linux" distributions are really distributions of Linux.

So, SteamOS is winning I take it?

I'm assuming that's what most of the others are
>>
>>52895860
I was forced to choose "Other" because Linux wasn't on that list
>>
>>52896131
>you fucking failed
Lol no. Alpine Linux is clearly "other".
>>
>>52896387
nope

If GNU isn't an OS then "Android" is neither.

A little ashamed to admit it, but neckbeard-status Arch. It's just so fast. Ballsack.

>>52896486
It is okay to refer to a GNU distribution as just "Linux",
but then you're not allowed to say "Android".
>>
>>52895860
Primeri is android, and desktop has win 7.

These people are right. This is should have had Linux and GNU, then we could have discussed combining the two. You never want "other" to be the top.
>>
>>52897994
I highly doubt most people use non-GNU Linux distributions as their primary desktop operating system.

Just GNU is not Linux you fuck, if you're refering to Linux to either say Linux or GNU/Linux dicknugget.

>>52896445
Wrong.
SteamOS is a derivative of GNU/Linux.

So only linux users who use emacs get an option in this poll?

Bull. Shit.
>>
>>52898004
i highly doubt anyone uses a significantly GNU distribution for anything

most linux distros are minority GNU. the code that runs the most is not GNU, and the code that is most important is nto GNU. GNU is an OS component for most people, not the OS. Most of /g/ doesn't even use fucking gnome.

if you want a GNU/linux distro install GUIX or something with a shell-based init that uses bash as /bin/sh and very little nongnu software out of the box.
>>
>>52900292
Everything debian based without gnome has the same amount of Linux and gnu code. With gnome it's more gnu.
>>
>>52895860
Arch, for now. I'm in the process of going to OpenBSD as my get-shit-done OS. I'll probably dual-boot an easy-mode Linux distro (probably Manjaro or Mint) for goofing off.
