Yes the word Fedora is shown (very prominently) during the boot. The is even
a trademark symbol to go along with it.
I think you can get these ISOs from archives and look at what they do.
For the most part I don't have dates written on my CDs and DVDs, so I don't
know that my physical copies are better than what you can get form some
official archive. But if you want my physical copies it would be possible
to send them to you guys.
