The Namespace Collision


United colors of Benetton Ramune


Found these at the Chinese supermarket this evening. I had a hunch that Ramune drinks came in more flavors than "clear" but until today, I'd never seen them.

Linux Gold Corporation??

No, that's not the operating system, but a gold mining company. Linux is a registered trademark, of course. However, a trademark is specific to the type of product carrying the name or symbol. So it was inevitable that sooner or later, something else named Linux will come along. Even so, I did a double-take when I came across that website. What's next? Mozilla microwave ovens?
