    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
