Or... maybe just skip the bracketed part, because the term is already
introduced in the second half of the (rather long) sentence:

"Debian can use the kernel of either Linux or FreeBSD 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."
