    Lets just keep the religion quips out of this please. We've already had one Jade in the forums and he was enough.

    I agree 100%. What happened to the separation of church and Fedora's state?

    Well it has little relevance. The theme for Fedora has been great historical leaders. Besides he even got the religion wrong. Constantine was baptized Orthodox on his death bed.

    In 337 a.d. there was still no distinction between Catholic and Orthodox Churches.

    I'm actually a bit sruprised the name did not pose any copyrighnt infringement, wasn't there a famous novel, then made movie from writer Stephen King with that very same name as the title? I just hope computers loaded with it don't start acting wierd.

    The importance, was the leader's turn from idolatry to christianity in general and not to orthodoxy specifically. So I suppose the choice of that name has to do with the adoption of a great change. Is there a great change planned for the next version of Fedora? If yes then I find it a right decision, if not then I suppose they could find a bunch of better names.
