Re-branding Ubuntu

,----[ Quote ]
| I personally did not think that was a good idea for two main reasons :
|
| 1. The number of forks for Ubuntu will/might keep on increasing. The
| flavours , the choice of software and hence, the user-base and community for
| each fork may vary. It does not make sense to have them under a single
| thread. It would be like saying Linux Feodora edition, Linux Slackware
| edition. You get the idea.
|
| 2. The users of these forks may themselves might not want to be a part of the
| Ubuntu umbrella. For example, Kubuntu users have their own freenode channel
| for IRC, their own ailing lists, etc. Futhermore, most KD users will hate
| working on GNOME (as is the case for GNOME users.)
