My experience is that this doesn't work for anyone.  The people who
understand the history and the components already have an opinion.  The
people who don't know the history or the components think, at most, that
GNU/Linux is some sort of variant of Linux, like "FreeBSD" is a spinoff
of BSD, and "SCO Unix" was a spinoff of Unix.

On the other hand, I don't have any problem with the request, and I
don't understand why Mr Kastrup rants about it.
