I thought it was Debian GNU/Linux because we are using 
GNU toolchain to build Linux, or something.

In analogy, we would have 

Debian cygwin/fenestra

or whatever you might call it.

Naming is not really important, and I really couldn't care.
Why insist on calling it Debian, or calling cygwin system
GNU/win32, when they themselves moved on from 
calling themselves from similar name?
