    or you can grab the code and make yet another distribution, and join the hundreds of contenders

    with all those, something gets improved they'll "all use"

    I bought some of that a few years ago, when I was in Sweden. I really liked it, but the other half did not.

    I'm not so sure if Canonical have the sole right to use the name "Ubuntu", as it is a common word in many languages.

    I don't think Canonical would care anyway. It is great to see this particular company is selling fair trade cola.

    Ubuntu is an actual spirital arican word meaning rougly to help each other or Humanity towards others... so not exactly something Canonical could contend unless it was another OS or piece of software....

    Of course, I know anyone can, I was just curious if they had ever been endorsed by ubuntu(os)
