GNU is *not* an operating system. An operating system must have a kernel as
its part. GNU does not, so it is not an operating system. GNU/Hurd is an
operating system, but than that is neither Fedora nor Linux.
So stop promoting GNU as an operating system. It is intended to be one, but
never made it on its own. It is a tried-and-failed-to-be-operating-system.
You cannot convince anyone that there can be an operating system without a
kernel. GNU within Fedora (or any Linux distro) is *not* an operating system.
It is only a part of an os.
