You should always call GNU/Linux for GNU/Linux.  The operating system
you are refering to is after all a variant of the GNU operating
system.  By just saying that the operating system you are using is
called "Linux", you are really "insulting" us, since we are the ones
who wrote the operating system that you are using, not Linus et al.
Hence the admonition. :-)

   [...] Debian GNU/Linux 3.1 contains a lot of information about
   exactly what versions of the programs I am using.

It contains to much information, and you might have
upgraded/downgraded various programs.  It is always simpler to note
what version of a program you are using instead of what version the
operating system you are using.
