You and many others don't go along with it. In fact, I don't call it
Gnu/Linux either, but that's out of pure laziness - I know I should.
However, the fact remains (and it is a fact - whether or not the system
should be called Gnu/Linux is debatable, but what follows is not) that
without RMS, the FSF and all the GNU software which has been developed over
the years (for the tiniest example, the C compiler without which there would
be none of the other software) there would be no Linux, Gnu/Linug or LiGNUx.
