Blind vs. mainstream distros

To clarify, I was under the impression that Fedora was, at least
originally, a derivative of RedHat Enterprise Linux and that the term
RedHat was typically used both for the company and for the distro that
bears their name(and perhaps it was presumptuous of me to think it was
obvious I meant Redhat the distro and not Redhat the company in my
previous post). Granted, there are so many distros and things change
so much between major releases of the long lived distros that it's
easy to get things mixed up, especially if you don't actively follow
development of distros other than the one you use on a daily basis,
and the last time I touched Fedora was before Ubuntu came on the
scene(I believe it was Ubuntu 5.10 that had me making the shift from
Windows to Linux if I remember correctly and I haven't step foot out
of the Debian family since).
