I totally agree this point of view. In my point of view, what we extend is
really a 'Linux' system and the spirit of Linux is just the same one as
GNU. Unfortunely, most Linux user don't what what they are using and why
they shoud use it. They use Linux jusy because Linux is newest, hotest and
coolest thing in the world. Give CLE a new name will illustrate the spirit
inside Linux and GNU system. 

GNU system is hotter and hotter everyday. However, if we can not spread
the spirit of it all the world, it's not worth our efforts.

Therefore, I think it's worth changeing the name of CLE to another one
which can illustrate the spirit of Linux/GNU system.
