GNU/Mach is not being promoted by anyone, and should not be used.
There is GNU Mach--that is just the GNU distribution of Mach, similar
to GNU Emacs, which is the GNU distribution of Emacs.
There is GNU/Hurd, which is a variant of the GNU system that uses the
Hurd (and currently Mach, though that may change someday) as its
basis. It is also correct to call GNU/Hurd just by the name GNU.
GNU/Linux is the variant of the GNU system that uses the Linux kernel.
