The vast, overwhelming majority of people saying "Linux" means the whole operating system just as the vast overwhelming majority of people saying "Windows" means the whole operating system.
There might be a tiny percentage of people who say "Linux" instead of "GNU/Linux" with a sort of inclusive intention (to not hurt the feelings of binaries that are not #GNU 🤣), but I'm pretty sure it doesn't reach 1% of all people using the term (or the OS).
So that's not a faulty assumption but a rather reasonable one.

Unreal. People in the federated timeline are debating whether or not to vote because “voting supports capitalism”. I do understand that there are a lot of anarchists on the fediverse, but not representing your own interests in the legal construct that you have to live under is, well, crazy. Otherwise, you end up looking like a “sovereign citizen” (for entertainment, look that up on YouTube) and no one takes you seriously.
Become informed and vote. Encourage others to do the same.

Listening for the third time to the amazing speech of @aral at the EU Parliament, this time looking at a better video which contains also his slides:
At minute 12:20 he rocks and says:
"You are acting as an unpaid Research and Development department for silicon valley. Because if a startup here succeeds, it gets bought by Google or Facebook. If it fails, we pick up the bill."
