UC Berkeley is a school, just like duke - non-profit organizations,
Apache is Apache Software Foundation, I believe, and that's also a
non-profit.

Mysql and sendmail are business, You're entirely correct, but sendmail
was a program before it was a company-oriented one, iirc. and mysql has
already had trademark trouble. 

But neither of those are companies that directly compete with red hat in
the distro field, I really would be curious about novell-config-foo
being included in red hat enterprise linux, or even in fedora core.
