I fully agree with you, in fact. I work on an open source project to
bring Linux software and thin clients into schools, called Skolelinux
(Skole being the Norwegian word for School). I have heard rumours of a
FSF fanatic (might have been RMS himself) arguing with our project
leader about the title, wanting us to change the title to
"Skole-GNU/Linux"!! :D
