Italian Researchers Demonstrate 'Powerloader' Suit

r1348 Re:Did you bother thinking? (57 comments)

Italy is an earthquake zone and this would work great for freeing people trapped under rubble, of course it's only a prototype, nobody is sending that on the field now, but there was also a point in history when horses were cheaper, faster and more efficient than cars, so you get my point.

No, it's community stranglehold under the disguise of trademark protection.
Of course, if I started a distro called The Better Redhat I'd have lawyers knocking down my door by dinner time, but if I called it, say, CentOS and declared it derived from RHEL but not officially endorsed by Redhat, I'd be just fine. Now that you cannot do with Ubuntu right now, or anyway the details are shady enough I'd not risk it.
