Very nice! :)

Please keep in mind that the whole system should be referred
to as either "GNU", "GNU/Hurd" or "Debian GNU/Hurd", where
"the GNU Hurd" is not the same as "GNU/Hurd".

You can check this URL:


where Neal H. Walfield explains each of these terms.

I recall this because some press articles I've read
(unrelated with Login: of course ;) had confusion on the terms.
