Well, Ubuntu will have a problem at that point as well (see Kubuntu and

them trouble. ^^
That's actually a little different, Kubutu and Xubuntu are considered
completely separate distributions from within the Ubuntu community.
They all have disjoint development teams (though *some* do cross
distros in their development efforts) really the only thing they share
is a package repository, but so do distros like Mint.

This is an aspect of Fedora that I really like, I always felt it
foolish to have a different distro for each Desktop Environment.

Yes, because what if someone installs Gnome, KDE, and XFCE? Is it now called Fedora 11GKX? Ukxuntu? (probably works out with some African dialect ;) )

Kevin, they'd probably just call it "Uubuntu" sadly.
