Etymology of linuz

This is one of those questions that pops up in my mind from time to time when working with the boot systems but are of no real importance so usually it's as long lived as a live system in Nairobi. I know that Linux is a mix of Linus and Minix and my best guess is that Linuz is another word play between Linus and Linux but thats just the obvious guess. Does anyone have any info on this?

Just to be clear:er I talk about Linuz in the sense of /boot/vmlinuz-linux.

Re: Etymology of linuz

Thank you, now I finally got that cozy feeling of a age old mystery going down the drain. smile
In my endless ignorance I only thought of searching the world after linuz and forgot that it always is used as vmlinuz.
