I would like to read the current opinion of *those* in charge of taking
care of the brands. Maybe in the past it was too risky to try the blue hat
thing, but things have changed. I think a blue hat helps more than harm.
As we can see from my previous e-mail, the word *Fedora* is internationally
recognized as *that* specific type of hat. Regardless of the attempts of
other languages to make up a word in that language, the word Fedora remains
used and acknowledged.

In such a circumstance, wearing a hat would pass as the same thing
wearing some fisherman boots: people wouldn't associate anything special to
it, they'd just think it's weird you're wearing that indoors.
It's nonsense to repeat it to you, but I will politely do.
Wearing a red hat
will be straight clear for people aware of the company,
as much as wearing a blue fedora will be straight clear for people aware of
If you want to count the number of people who know Red Hat and compare to
the number of people who know the name of the hat, I think that more people
will know the name of the hat. In a technology event, though, I'm almost
sure more people will know the company. However, who are Fedora ambassadors
talking to usually? Not really tech people.
