GNU/Linux is the OS, Linux being the kernel (central system operations thingy) and GNU being the toolset (your command prompt and all neccesary basic commands). To explain in depth would take up a large book, in fact several, it already does.
Fortunately very little of this is actually relevant to any one persons needs.

Simply put, Linux is an open source, unix like operating system. And a very good one at that.
