[Mageia-discuss] Linux is a KERNEL not an OS

 From strictly a users point of view the program I use is Linux. I have 
been a Mandrake/Mandriva Linux user for 9 years. When asked what program 
I use I say "Linux". I have no idea what GNU is or does and I don't 
really care. I also believe the general public is more familiar with the 
name Linux than any other. The goal of Mageia should be to gain 
acceptance as the best "Linux" distribution for the general public and 
not confuse them with technical terms.
