Is it based on gnu mach? Is it completely Gnu OS in
that manner?
or is it Gnu/Linux for Human Beings?

Hello Revant,

  Gnubuntu is a proposed GNU/Linux distribution more
ideologically pure and true to free software movement.
 Free software and open source are not always
congruent terms or more importantly congruent
licenses.  There are many licensing types such as
GNU/GPL, Apache, BSD, and even traditional commercial
software with its copyrights/patents all of which
afford the user and developer different
rights/freedoms.  Gnubuntu would be closer to
distribution such as Ututo or GNU Darwin which focus
on Free software (FOSS Free/Libre/Open-Source
Software).  I don't know if it is off the ground yet
but it was proposed by Mark Shuttleworth (Linux guru,
coder, and financier) who also responsible for the
wonderful work that is Ubuntu.
