That's true.  Most distros do not recognize that this system is
basically GNU; they give the credit for the GNU Project's work

The frequence of this mistake is why correcting it is important.
If the mistake were rare, we might as well not worry about it.

From now and on, for me, I'll do my best to always write "GNU/Linux" instead of "Linux". After all, it will cost me one extra second and GNU Project and everyone who worked so hard on that project for all these years are definitely deserve this extra second :)
