GNU/Linux refers to a class of operating systems/distributions of GNU and Linux. GNU is the project started by Richard Stallman to create a FOSS replacement for the Unix OS. On the other hand, Linux is just a kernel (hence, only a small - if crucial - part of an OS). For more information about this topic, please refer to: https://www.gnu.org/gnu/linux-and-gnu.html
