Why so?

I personally prefer to call the system GNU/Linux, will continue to
call it so (when referring to the system as a whole and not to the
kernel) but I feel that such discussion is Off Topic for this mailing
list. Although I'm violating my intention not to pollute linux-kernel
any more than it is already, I feel that your conclusion is a bit too
far fetched. Besides, I don't think all contributors to the GNU
project and all the persons which call the system GNU/Linux are
subscribed to this mailing list.
