Balling has attributed to me
The only people (or to clarify, the FIRST person) who claimed Linux was
"part of the GNU system" was RMS.
Actually I do not say that Linux is part of the GNU system. What I
say is that the GNU/Linux system is the combination of GNU and Linux.
It is the result of integrating Linux into the GNU system, but it
isn't precisely the GNU system. It is a system that differs from GNU
in having a different kernel.
