that's something that's always bothered me about the Free Software Foundation and RMS trying to call it "GNU/Linux".

well, there was and to some degree still is a fuckton of BSD code in Linux userland. A lot of Linux manpages were also taken directly from BSD.

also... what about the X11/XFree86 guys?

I grant that GNU has a hell of a lot of impact on Linux distros, but if they get credit, why should the other guys go unsung?

he's annoying as hell, but he does good work IMO.
