I'm not sure I'm glad I heard about it.

You wouldn't even if Hannah Montana Linux was not the first "distribution" to include Wayland by default.
If a respin/remix doesn't offer *real* advantages that eventually could go upstream I wouldn't give it any special room on this forum.

I'd stick with what richb said. Even more after reading feedback by users on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/6653008 ... 686800014/ (only accessible when joined/logged in)

Another consideration is how closely a celebrity would restrict unauthorized use of their images and music. I don't think that falls under any "fair use" clause.
