I think it's the other way around - Canonical adopted the name Ubuntu to
describe the philosophy of their project just as the Fair-Trade people
have adopted the name Ubuntu for their Cola. As I understand it, people
have 'Ubuntu' if they show humanity to others:
Seems a pretty good model for a Linux distribution to follow too ;-)
