    I agree with your postion on calling a Linux system GNU/Linux.  Have you
    considered using the name GNU/Windows when refering to machines that use
    the RedHat Cygwin UNIX envoroment?

No, because in that case the whole Windows system is still there.
GNU/Linux means "the GNU system, modified by changing the kernel."
Just adding some GNU software to another operating system
is not at all the same thing.  The result is not "basically the GNU
system" in that latter case.
