<slight rant on>

  technically, i know that, but perhaps red hat should start
protecting its brand a bit more aggressively.  go to fedoraunity.org:


everything about that site screams "fedora".  the name.  the icon.
the colour scheme.  the wording:

  Welcome to the Fedora Unity Project
  by The Fedora Unity Team — last modified Dec 13, 2007 07:09 PM

  sorry, but i just don't have much patience with someone telling me
that those two things are in no way connected.  if fedora wants to
disavow any connection to fedora unity, it should demand that the
unity site doesn't work so hard to look like fedora.  or at least have
a *major* disclaimer at the very top making that clear.
