Why is it just Linux on the Guix website and not GNU Linux?

@rajudev

GNU Guix running on Linux, the kernel.

As the Linux, the kernel is not made by the GNU project, calling it GNU Linux would be wrong.

But GNU/Linux has different meaning.. It means "GNU and Linux" just as input/output means "input and output".

On the other hand GNU Hurd is made by the GNU Project, so calling it "GNU Hurd" is alright.
