In most Unix circles in german speaking coutries,
the somewhat incorrect translation "Home-Verzeichnis"
is much more widely used. At least that's my personal
experience, and YMMV, of course.

The general convention here is
as in
   Debian GNU/Linux
   Debian GNU/Hurd
We also use terms like
   Hurd/L4    (well, we would like to ;-))

At a lower level, the convention is
as in, say

In both cases: Something-runs-on-top-of-something-else,
where "on-to-of" is represented by a slash.

Please see above. If possible, let's keep the slash here,
to stick to widely used conventions.
