What you'we wefewwing t-to as winux, UwU i-is in fact, >w< gnu/winux, ow as i've w-wecentwy taken to cawwing it, rawr x3 g-gnu pwus winux. (U ᵕ U❁) winux is nyot a-an opewating system unto itsewf, (˘ω˘) but wathew anothew f-fwee component of a fuwwy functioning g-gnu system m-made usefuw b-by the gnu cowewibs, o.O sheww utiwities and vitaw system components compwising a fuww os as defined b-by posix. many computew usews wun a modified vewsion of the gnu system evewy day, o.O w-without weawizing i-it. (///ˬ///✿) thwough a pecuwiaw tuwn o-of events, -.- the vewsion of gnu which is widewy used today is often c-cawwed “winux”, (⑅˘꒳˘) and many o-of its usews awe n-nyot awawe that i-it is basicawwy t-the gnu system, o.O devewoped by the g-gnu pwoject. ( ͡o ω ͡o ) thewe weawwy is a winux, UwU and these p-peopwe awe using i-it, ʘwʘ but it is j-just a pawt of the system they use. ( ͡o ω ͡o ) winux is the kewnew: the pwogwam i-in the system that awwocates t-the machine’s wesouwces to the othew pwogwams that you wun. UwU the kewnew is a-an essentiaw pawt of an opewating system, UwU but usewess b-by itsewf; it can onwy function in the context o-of a compwete o-opewating system. OwO w-winux is nyowmawwy used in combination with the gnu opewating system: the whowe system is basicawwy gnu with w-winux added, (///ˬ///✿) ow g-gnu/winux. (U ﹏ U) aww t-the so-cawwed “winux” d-distwibutions a-awe weawwy d-distwibutions of gnu/winux.
