"Debian can use either the Linux kernel or kFreeBSD at its core, but
most of the basic OS tools come from the GNU project; hence the names
Debian GNU/Linux or Debian GNU/kFreeBSD."
Since kFreeBSD is the the kernel's name. And it is also redundant to
speak of "a kFreeBSD kernel". But when speaking of Linux it's
unfortunately necessary to be specific when referring only to the kernel.
And I used the word 'can' to try to leave open the idea that other
kernels for Debian could exist (like Hurd) even if only the release
architectures are named here.
