Hi there!

No flame, please, this is a fair question.

Are these informations the same for other Unixes, i.e. Debian
GNU/kFreeBSD?  Then the above should be corrected to reflect that.

Please note that in any case I would correct that, we still call it
Debian GNU/Linux and not simply Linux:


  Debian is a free operating system (OS) for your computer. An operating
  system is the set of basic programs and utilities that make your
  computer run. Debian uses the Linux kernel (the core of an operating
  system), but most of the basic OS tools come from the GNU project;
  hence the name GNU/Linux.

Thx, bye,
