Shouldn't we call this the Gnu stack exchange and not call it the linux or unix stack exchange? We aren't here to ask questions or talk about the kernel, we are here talking about the gigantic suite of free programs designed to allow people to use computers, and interact with computers with ethical applications, that aren't inherently deceptive.
It should be seen as the ultimate irony that Linux is the common name, but for something completely different, GNU, which is the basis of "linux" computing in reality, whereas the kernel is really small in comparison. It's more like a suite of drivers that your real, gnu based software utilizes in order to provide us with a complete operating system.
It might seem trivial of course, it's the commonly used term to call it Linux, and they both work together regardless along similar lines to achieve a similar goal, but I think it's more important to use language that is in the first place, honest, and directly related to the significant information in the first place.
I've been starting to study computer science more frequently, and have found throughout the programmatic world, a kind of systematic misappropriation of language to describe all sorts of concepts, which then makes it much more difficult to understand more complex subject matter.
I think that fundamentally the ethics of this operating system we all use, are absolutely a part of its programming, and that that is extremely important to emphasize.
