Not only should it be "GNU/Linux" (Rawhide's "Linux" would be only 
kernel-2.6.21-1.3116.fc7), it also doesn't really convey the idea that it's 
just the subset of the packages in the default spin. A term like "Prime" 
or "Core" or "default spin" is really needed. The problem is just what 
term: "Prime" sounded a bit strange the first time I heard it (and not 
immediately obvious to me as a non-native English speaker, so I guess new users 
might be confused by it), "Core" is too reminiscent of the Core/Extras 
repository split (but would otherwise be the best term IMHO) and "default spin" 
is too technical.
