User talk: GNUtoo

I am looking at your edit: https://libreplanet.org/wiki?title=User:GNUtoo/FSDG_distributions_comparison&curid=21712&diff=61217&oldid=60895 Can you explain your view on how is Replicant not a GNU/Linux distribution?

It's a fully free software Android distribution.

Android uses the Linux kernel. Replicant uses the GNU toolchain and provides the user with the four freedoms. I would consider it to still be a GNU/Linux system.

It has probably no GNU software at all inside. GNUtoo (talk) 01:25, 23 September 2019 (EDT)

I would say the kernel is compiled with gcc at least, but this page agrees with you https://www.gnu.org/distros/free-non-gnu-distros.html so we can leave it.
