The same issue has come up in documentation - we refer to the OS on the
reader's computer as "Fedora", because it isn't strictly Fedora Core and
there isn't another agreed term, but it's not ideal.

I agree that Fedora Linux may cause future problems. "Fedora System" or
"Fedora Distribution" don't sound quite right to me as formal terms,
