Hypothetically speaking, if you want someone to know what you've done,
then say so exactly.  It's time YOU understood that just about everybody
else does not agree with you about what "Linux" means, and *you* need to
describe terms in a manner that they understand.  So, you'd say you were
a Linux developer, *and* you worked on the kernel, or whatever other

By this stage I'm certain that you're a troll.  You come in stirring up
a debate, asking questions that you want to answer yourself.
