If we do this, can we PLEASE drop the braindead Fedora patch which changes 
"GNU/Linux" to just "Linux"? "Fedora GNU/Linux, with Linux 3.…" makes sense, 
"Fedora Linux, with Linux 3.…" (which Fedora's grub2-mkconfig generates 
right now) does not, it looks very confusing.

Linux is just the kernel.
