    And it's called GNU Linux, not Linux. Linux is the kernel, like Linux in Android.

      Actually, the exact name to receive the same treatment as the rest of OS would be to call it just GNU. You don't say NT Kernel nor Darwin, and even you don't say Linux in the case of Android. You say Windows, OS X and Android.
      System branding. People don't normally say "Linux" in that context you are taking about, instead they say "Ubuntu" or "Red Hat".

        Undermining other OSes and correcting people into saying "GNU Linux" (which, as stated previously, isn't even completely correct) is exactly why people hate the linux community - it makes us look very pretentious.

        People understand that:
        *Linux isn't an OS, it's a kernel.
        *KDE5 isn't a thing - it's actually KDE frameworks 5 and plasma workspaces 2.
        *Saying "PIN number" is redundant, even though it is often spoken for clarification.
        *A yellow traffic light means "yield", not "speed up"
        *It's not correct to call people from the US as "Americans" because that refers to everyone from both North and South Americas.

        the list goes on and on. These are things nearly everyone knows, but people CHOOSE to ignore them, for varying reasons.

          I ignore them mainly because it upsets FSFags

            The only other comparison I would like to see power management seeing as a large part of the Air's appeal is its long battery life.

              It's great when someone tries so hard to be anything but ignorant, and then ends up being totally ignorant.

                It would have been more beneficial to bench against OSX 10.10 considering Linux 3.16 is not a final release.

                  i have 5 hours of battery life with a cheap asus notebook with a garbage battery is almost certain with a macbook air you have a lot more, kernel 3.15 and 3.16 improves a lot the battery life

                    The reason I call it "Linux" is because "GNU" is ugly as hell. And also, people wouldn't know what I'm talking about if I said "GNU".

                      OS X doesn't look better either. Porn comes to mind.

                      You're the ignorant here, mister.

                      Calling it GNU/Linux is completely correct. Userland is full GNU, including the vastly used Linux API implementation: glibc. Graphics interface is an add-on that doesn't count and is outside the main user land.
                      KDE is called KDE SC, KDE Software Compilation which uses KDE Framework and Plasma Workspaces in a similar manner GNU uses Linux.

                      The rest, I'm OK with that and you could call people from the US as "americans" because they're in America so americans is their generic type but programs for native Android are not valid for GNU nor BusyBox.

                      Code:
                      System branding. People don't normally say "Linux" in that context you are taking about, instead they say "Ubuntu" or "Red Hat".
                      But in fact those are GNU/Linux systems. Their generic type is GNU which abstracts Linux.
                      Today I think I'll download Debian GNU/Linux.
