But they don't correct the title and the article ... so imagine, most of
people coming from windows and apple which try to have some information
about what they know ... most of time Linux, they just rarely, for
"best" of them find the true.

Speaking for myself, I have contributed in the early days of Linux (0.98) to various distribs and sent patches to 
several parts of them (except the kernel). Most of these (small) patches were to GNU Software. Just to say that I know
the difference between the kernel and the rest of the packages and were they come  from. But take it for language
lazyness / failure to impose a brand / penalty for success ... all people around me (students, colleagues in France)
use "Linux" for the GNU/Linux system. (On the other hand they would possibly say that Linux is FSF sofware.)

(No offense intended!)
