Hi Huiren,

This sounds interesting! I appreciate your feedback, but I'm not sure that
we can infer that Microsoft is "collaborating" or endorses Fedora since it
is not true. That could get into a more lofty area that we might not want
to get involved with.

In regards to Chakra being open source, I think, inherently, the article is
making a joke, not proposing a real product or project. Hence, I think
talking about the open source components of Edge and "collaboration" would
be a bit of a grey area and a bit too convincing, perhaps?

Although Edge exists, I think IE is still available for download for those
who are looking for it. I think using IE rather than Edge might be a good
way to provide comedy value without getting into too many problems. Instead
of talking about details and aspects that might imply endorsement when
there is none, we could try parodying some well-known "issues" or aspects
of Fedora, for instance, its speed, its crashes, or its lack of
compatibility. We could also put in some edited screenshots for fun, if we
can get some before the end of the day tomorrow :)

What do you think?
