This is more or less valid, but please think of the context - in this
case, people should find the way to the *Debian* homepage and find out
about Debian. Especially since there are some problems between Debian
and the FSF that are still not resolved.
That's why I don't care if we call our distribution Debian Linux, Debian
GNU/Linux, Debian GNU or Debian GNU/kFreeBSD (I mean, we provide the
usual GNU userland for it, right?)
