The article "Linux"[edit]

I do not like the article Linux in its current version, especially the introduction. As already suggested here: Talk:POSIX#FUD, I would like to rephrase this to:

The terms "Linux" and "GNU/Linux" describe/refer to the family of Linux kernel-based operating systems – and not any one operating system. Their base components, i.e. the Linux kernel (more precisely its System Call Interface (SCI)), the GNU C Library or the uClibc, the GNU Core Utilities and a couple of more packages, make many Linux operating systems behave "unix-like" though none of the Linux distributions has bothered so far to actually become UNIX®-certified, mostly because of financial reasons.

XScreenSaver[edit]

The collections XScreenSaver has been described as arousing a WOW effect by people, who were new to Linux. Looking at commons:Category:XScreenSaver, I get not WOW effect. User:ScotXWt@lk
