Re: How to check for a GNU userland

I've never quite understood what the "vendor" is supposed to mean, exactly. I
mean, in the case of, say, a SparcStation running Solaris, it's pretty obvious
who the vendor is:

sparc-sun-solaris, mips-sgi-irix, alpha-dec-tru64

However, in the case of PCs, the software and hardware are usually from
different sources. Now, which of these looks more useful to you?

i386-compaq-linux, i386-dell-netbsd, i386-gateway-hurd
i386-debian-linux, i386-debian-netbsd, i386-debian-hurd

Yeah, that's what I thought.
Either way, the "unknown" has to go, IMHO.
