It is a completely different font altogether. The one used in the 
logotype is the Bryant 2 font, which is not freely available and has to 
be purchased from 

I still have some gripes of using a proprietary font for the logotype (I 
seem to be alone there) instead of either:

- Making from scratch the typeface, like it was the case for Fedora 1-4.

- Using a freely available font.

As I said, I seem to be the only one with such gripes... Guess I'll have 
to mange and "live with it™", and is not like I'm a FLOSS zealot, just 
seemed to go against the "FLOSS only" philosophy of Fedora and the 
reasons why there are no mp3 or DVD support in the distribution, amongst 
other non-free programs... So non-free programs = no, non-free typefaces 
= yes for official use? That's what I have a problem with... But, as I 
said, I'm [albeit slowly] learning to "live with it™".
