In this video, Gary explains the difference between Linux (the kernel) and GNU/Linux (the Operating System).
The word “Linux” has entered into the English language meaning a complete Unix-like operating system based on the Linux kernel, which was originally written by Linus Torvalds. However there are people that claim that Linux is just a kernel, and not a full OS. People who make such distinctions often insist on using the GNU/Linux moniker.
Do you make this distinction, or are you more like us? We here at Technology Explained use both the terms Linux and GNU/Linux. We’re not that picky, as long as people understand what we mean 🙂
