Description:

Being new to Linux (and graphics) I made a wallpaper that I can refer to.

Nice wallpaper :) I think people here are getting carried away with the GNU stuff and have forgotten that it is really, well, just a wallpaper (who could've guessed!).

GNU is nice and all, but it has really nothing to do with this. On the other hand I find the wallpaper well made, and that's all that matters imo :)

95% of my work on linux is done in KDE, very little GNU about it, 'cept that it was compiled with gcc. Granted, a lot of the apps used 'under the hood' are GNU apps, but I find calling it 'GNU/Linux' silly, since it assumes that the apps would not have been created anyways had they not existed.

I call what I drive to work my Car, not my Ford/Car, even though a lot of the pieces 'under the hood' are indeed, Ford made pieces.

I give respect to Stallman, because he *has* done a lot for F/OSS, but the whole silly "It has to be *GNU*/Linux!" thing is just...silly.

You're missing so many pieces of the puzzle that I almost can't comment, but... here it goes:

In the first place, if you're going to ignore the GNU part, you almost may as well ignore the linux part also. The underlying GNU programs and libraries are a huge part of what makes linux functional. For instance, nearly every app that runs on linux (including the KDE ones) is linked against glibc, and many, many others are linked against (several) other GNU libs. Further, the idea of the 'GNU OS' goes far deeper than you know, and far deeper than I care to delve in this post.

I'm going to pretend that I didn't read the part about the apps being made anyway, because an answer to it would be way too long for this post...

And, finally, the command reference that he listed was for UNIX (POSIX, that is) commands that have nothing (directly) to do with linux, and which are usually provided in linux based operating systems by GNU varients.

Almost every single app and library which runs on Linux is under GNU/GPL license, as well as Linux and KDE themselves.
Linux is a single piece in a giant open source unix puzzle, it's an important one but not the only one.
We should thank Richard Stallman for seeking software freedom as we praise Linus Torvalds for creating such a great kernel.
Just my two cents...

Remember that you are using GNU/Linux.
GNU should be not forgoten. Stallman should be just near Linus.

Sorry Richard...
I will be sure to add them both when I begin learning my next topic ;)
