I like it. that way you always know the kernel you are running, but it's
still "Debian GNU/<Kernel>". If you want every detail, please use
"Debian GNU/<Kernel>[ architecture]".
I don't like "Debian GNU/Unix" :
- GNU is not Unix. Debian doesn't violate this.
- UNIX is a trademark ?
- UNIX is a spec (UNIX95, UNIX98), and it costs too
much money to test Debian for this spec (and will require some work).
- Every CD Cover etc. needs to print "Linux", "Hurd", or "Freebsd" .. anyway.
same for the architecture.
- Linux is a well known name, good for marketing.
