The FAQ for your particular question is at
http://www.gnu.org/gnu/linux-and-gnu.html explains why this is not
silly, in depth.
I'm sorry if I've come across as making a silly suggestion - I am
being very earnest here.
I am not suggesting to call the system by my favourite component.
While the X Windowing System, GTK, and the Linux kernel are
components, "GNU" is not a component.

www.gnewsense.org is FSF sponsored, and removes all proprietary
software from the Ubuntu GNU/Linux distribution.
