Yes, the GNU Project set out to develop an operating system.
It has, so far, failed to do so. (Though the HURD is finally coming
together, from what I hear. Congratulations.)
Meanwhile, other people took bits of things from here and there and,
in combination with the Linux kernel, succeeded in developing an
operating system. They call it "Linux" -- more specifically, "Red Hat
Linux", "Slackware Linux", etc.
Their products, their names. Deal.
