GNU Operating System - The GNU Project was launched in 1984 to develop a complete Unix-like
operating system which is free software: the GNU system. GNU's
kernel isn't finished, so GNU is used with the kernel Linux. The combination of GNU and Linux is the GNU/Linux operating
system, now used by millions. The name GNU is a recursive acronym for GNU's Not Unix; it is pronounced g-noo, as one
syllable with no vowel sound between the g and the n.
