Linus Torvalds: The New Linux Is Gnu Linux

One of the long and painful debates over the name has ended with Linus Torvalds, the father of Linux kernel, accepting the name Gnu/Linux for the Linux based machines. This acceptance has brought together two forces of the Free Software movement – Linus Torvalds and Richard M. Stallman.

This morning (April 1, 2010) Linus posted on his blog that he had been considering the name change for a while as the OS people use is a combination of Linux kernel and GNU user land or application set. However, people and companies are free to call the system as they wish to call it.

Linus has also announced that the next update of Linux, 2.6.35.0 will be codenamed The New Linux which he said is a clever hack of the word Gnu Linux thus The New Linux -- it sounds same!
