Before I joined mastodon, I was blissfully unaware of what linux even was

@pantransautie @FirstProgenitor i'd just like to interject for a moment. what you're referring to as linux, is in fact, gnu/linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, gnu plus linux. linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning gnu system made useful by the gnu corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full os as defined by posix

@FirstProgenitor I’ve been here for two years and still don’t know what it is

@FirstProgenitor I like to tell Linux fans that I found a "cool, free version of Windows called 'Linux.'"
