GNU Full Form is GNU’s Not Unix. GNU was launched by Richard Stallman in 1983, as an operating system. The primary and continuing goal of GNU is to offer a Unix-compatible system that would be 100% free software. The GNU packages have been designed to work together so we could have a functioning GNU system.
Naturally, work on GNU is ongoing, with the goal to create a system that gives the greatest freedom to computer users. GNU packages include user-oriented applications, utilities, tools, libraries, even games—all the programs that an operating system can usefully offer to its users.
