Linux is simply a shorter, easier version of saying GNU/Linux. 

Similar to "US" being a shorter version of "USA".

Any GNU/Linux distro is a packaging of Linux kernel with GNU
programs. Most of these GNU programs (X, Gnome, KDE, binutils, gcc)
run under many kernels and operating systems, such as Linux, BSD, Sun,
MS Windows, and so on and so forth.
