" I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you’re referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.
Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called “Linux”, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project. There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use.
Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine’s resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called “Linux” distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux. "

I like GNU/Linux and I respect RMS of what he did with the GNU project and still does. But why does he have to be so bitchy about the name thing(Same goes with Open vs Free). Linus Thorvald was a bit more handy writing a kernel which made the system actually running, Hurd(the GNU counterpart) on the other hand is still in developement (and propably will be forever)

warning Zombie badgers can move at great speeds, and are prone to sudden acceleration; use proper caution when driving your zombie badger. Do not allow your zombie badger to consume mushrooms or African snakes, or your badger may emit catchy techno music. Do not taunt zombie badgers. Prolonged use of a zombie badger may cause acne, insomnia, leprosy, unusual weather, or the end of time.

Badger linux is still in heavy development. It would be more sensible to make a fork of Toaster linux

I'm a programmer of roughly 10 years now and I swear every time I hear that word FORK related to programs/applications it just rustles my jimmies so hard.  I know it's an actual computer science term but I just hate hearing it because of it's ridiculous wording/usage. "hey man, you can fork my project on github". A fork is an object for eating food, not for any acronyms for life or computer programming!    
   
Come on people, anyone know of a better word then "fork"? I will start using it all the time and maybe it will spread throughout the industry!
