What do you mean with "private version"? A lot of Linux distros are  
applying non-ASF originated patches for example (and they'd have to  
actually rename their pkgs but that's another story). Or do you think  
about closed-source / proprietary versions?

Huh? I really think you're reading things into that which are simply  
not there. The sentence doesn't imply anything of Linux - it just  
says that a lot of Linux distros are coming with that piece of software.

And who is "our legal"?
