Yes, it is called CRUX.

I thought the kernel was Linux, and everything else GNU?  That's why
Stallman insists on calling combinations of GNU tools with Linux kernels
GNU/Linux.  I could also argue that some distros should rather be called
X/Linux or KDE/Linux by the same argument.

CRUX was named CRUX, not Crux GNU/Linux, by it's creator.  You can argue
as long as you want if you want to call it a GNU/Linux distro or a Linux
distro, but please take that row elsewhere.
