There is another important and non-technical dimension that we should
consider as a community when we discuss the kernel, or its replacement.

Marketing. (Yes the word now officially appears on a developer mailing
list ;)

Two experiments:

1) Say the word "Linux" to an average (non-technical) computer user.
Note their emotional response.
2) Say the word "Mach" to a Mac user. Note their emotional response.

Is Linux Ubuntu? Is Ubuntu Linux?
