My point was that words change their meaning. Unix isn't Unix anymore.
For that matter, Linux != Linux. When most people talk about Linux, do
you think they're talking about a kernel? I read an interview of Richard
Stallman in which he whined a bit about how the collection of GNU stuff
combined with a Linux kernel is called "Linux." There's probably more GNU
code than Linus code in any given Linux distribution.
