You COULD interpret it that way but I don't believe that was the intent. I
understand Linux was named that because it was LINus Torvald's interpretation
of the UniX kernel. On the other hand, Richard Stallman's original system GNU,
which Linux works with, IS self-referential, and I suspect what you were
thinking of: GNU stands for GNU's Not Unix! -Steve
