Linux used to be The Revolutionary Thing, but in the end the revolution was really the free/libre software, and Linux is just possibly the brightest star of it.
On the other hand, it's not that huge a problem - there are always situations where the historical name is more of a brand, a memory instead of being a precise term. And the Linux presents a bit more pragmatic brand than the more idealistic free software, though I strongly advocate the latter myself because it's so easy to go to wrong direction in case the idealism is forgotten by too many.

But someone needs to tell Tux that the text he is sitting on in the logo in the upper left ("Linux info from the source") is wrong ;-)
