Bug#168695: www.debian.org: Whole site too Linux specific

Package: www.debian.org
Version: N/A; reported 2002-11-09
Severity: normal

At present, virtually all Debian installations use the Linux kernel.
However, the HURD and BSD ports are making good progress, and one or
more may be ready in time for the next release. I think we need to move
away from the idea that Debian is just a Linux distro -- it's a powerful
operating environment, that runs on a number of platforms.

Unfortunately, many Debian documents, including the front page of
www.debian.org, are peppered with references to GNU/Linux. Changing this
will take time, which is why I'm filing this now. By gradually removing
kernel specificity in future revisions, hopefully we can be on top of
this in time for the first non-Linux release, whenever it may be.
