Linux is not an OS (Link) Ctrl-F "Fedora"



In case of any relevance
http://www.nuxified.org/article/linux_not_os

"What I believe we should focus on instead is designation of what we used to call "distros" as operating systems in their own right. We could call them "Linux based" operating systems to denote the fact that they have Linux as the core. FSF fans can call it "GNU based" if they wish, but the distro itself is the actual OS, not "Linux" or "GNU/Linux". So when we try to get people to switch, I believe we would be FAR more effective to just pick one OS on the market and promote that one on its own merits. If you pick Fedora then call it a Linux based Fedora OS and brag about all of the things that make Fedora great, not all of the things that make Linux or GNU great - alas both GNU and Linux are a part of Fedora, but it is still this unique product and user experience we can have with it that is what we are interested in, not the parts."
