Totally agree with Richard. 
But even knowing the fact that the operating system You use is GNU/Linux - it 
human habit to reduce words and say "Linux" instead of "GNU/Linux", "X Server" 
instead of "Xorg Server", "ssh" instead of "openssh" and etc. It means that 
GNU/Linux became a "standard" for most of Linux-based OS.
