Reminder that Linux is merely a component of a fully functional GNU system.

>>51521798
I'm terribly sorry for interjecting, but 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.

Linux is a better name than GAYNOO SLASH LEENUCKS

We're lucky that Torvolds' buddy named it "Linux" which is actually a surprisingly nice name for a free project. Not some stupid fucking name like GNUSENSE or GIMP. Just like they're terrible at design, freetards suck at naming.

Linux is a nicer, better name and helps promote Linux better than the shitty freetard equivilent does.

Go away.

I use the GNU core utils and more GNU software and refer to it as Linux because rms is a Bernie Sanders supporter. Besides, GNU software is inefficient as shit, link related: https://gist.github.com/pete/665971

Why freetard try to hang on Linux's success trying to call it ginu shalsh loonucs, Why can't you accept that without Linux GNU wouldn't even exist now, IBM, Intel, Oracle don't give a fuck about muh political bullshit in software, they care about quality and flexibility, that's why they use and contribute to Linux.
>>
>>51522798
Linux wouldn't exist without GNU.
>>
>>51522809
Yes it would, eventually something would have came along. Gahnoo on the other hand would have been another obscure dead project without the boost from Linux. No wait, it still is apart from the shit they wrote in the 80's.
>>
>>51522937
Sorry but you can't rewrite history. Linux was specifically created with the GNU coreutils in mind.
>>
>>51522961
>[citation needed]
Can you explain why the license of version 0.01 is not GPL?, seems like using GNU tools on top of Linux came afterwards.
>>
>>51522961
And GNU was created with a kernel in mind that never really happened.
>>
>>51523060
>Sadly, a kernel by itself gets you nowhere. To get a working system you need a shell, compilers, a library etc. These are separate parts and may be under a stricter (or even looser) copyright. Most of the tools used with linux are GNU software and are under the GNU copyleft. These tools aren't in the distribution - ask me (or GNU) for more info.

Why do people struggle with this so much?

Yes, if you go out of your way to remove all GNU components, then you are not using GNU/Linux. It works the other way too though. You can remove linux and use kFreeBSD and in that cause you would not be using GNU/Linux. The fact is that most distros ship GNU/Linux.
>>
>>51523452
but anon, that's true; official release from kernel.org can't be built with anything except gcc; go ahead, try it: whatever icc version you want and whatever clang you want
>>
>>51523470
And most dristros ship with Xorg so why don't you get so vocal about people not saying GNU/Xorg/Linux?

>>51523525
Because you can have a functioning operating system without X.

>>51523525
you don't need xorg to compile the kernel; you need gnu

Yeah because all i do is compile the kernel all day.
>>51523533
>functioning operating system
If you mean a system that let's me get the job done then no, because i need drivers to make my hardware work, i need a display server to use software with GUI, i need a sound system to be able to listem to music, and so on.
So again why i shouldn't call the system GNU/Nvidia/Xorg/Pulseaudio?
>>
>>51523649
>If you mean a system that let's me get the job
No you idiot. I mean a OS that works at all.

A kernel by itself cannot do anything at all and is not a functioning operating system.

An operating system is software that allows the user to operate the system.

GNU/Linux it is.
GNU+Linux and
