    For those of you that don't know the NFL strictly control who and how the name Super Bowl is used, for instance you may have noticed that in any none NFL commercial it is always referred to as "The Big Game" or something similar but no one outside the NFL is allowed to use Super Bowl because it is trademarked and the NFL aggressively protects that trademark.

    Red Hat should do the same thing and say that going forward no one is allowed to claim they are or are not binary or bug-for-bug compatible with RHEL, Red Hat or any reference to Red Hat's software.

    If these people want to build a Linux based business then let them do it on their own, no more free ride.
    Do you get mayo with your sandwich for trolling ?

      ...then all of these 1:1 clones popped up that offered the Red Hat experience ...without the Red Hat support. So what was the point?
      the point is that redhat trolls should be less obvious
