I agree completely. Anyone who doesn't care for the term "GNU/Linux"
should try running a Linux system without any GNU components. The kernel
is a critical part of the system, but it's only one part, and not even a
very large part if you compare it (by binary size or lines of code) to
the GNU C library, plus the fileutils, the binutils, gcc, etc.
