Can you please not refer to Mint Linux as Ubuntu Mint. Mint and Ubuntu
are two separate projects with their own developers, forums and mailing
We are all in the same big happy open source family but there are issues
of branding and trademark. The Ubuntu trademark is owned by Canonical
and I am sure they would not want it to be diluted. I am sure the Mint
people are proud of their work and feel the same.

person in that situation might ask about after market accessories on a
Mazda forum and get friendly and useful advice but might also get
completely misleading advice if Ford had changed the spec on some parts.
