If you want to please RMS, "just call your kernel Limerick and your OS GNU/Limerick then" as he said. But again Haiku is not defined just by the GNU tools and a kernel. 3) Haiku is not a GNU/Linux distribution: cf. 1 & 2. 4) Haiku is not Unix: it doesn't try to be compatible with *nix. Just enough POSIX to port things. Haiku is an OS in its own rights. There are many *nix software ported to Windows with Cygwin and MingW, yet noone tries to speak of Windows as a Unix or Linux distro. François.
