I respectfully disagree.  I think this is being blown entirely out of
proportion.  I've attached two screenshots -- one of the current
syslinux boot menu from Fedora 14, and the other from a sample
multi-boot DVD image Christoph provided me.  I don't see how the one
Christoph provided compromises our brand in any respect.

(Please note that the names in the attached screenshot will change --
they had dates in them to make it easier to see which images were
being used.)
