Hi

"Chip manufacturer Intel wants to use parts of the Fedora Project Linux 
distribution instead of Ubuntu as the basis for the second version of 
Moblin (Mobile & Internet Linux Project)."

"Intel is keen on using a Linux distribution that uses RPM packages and 
package management software. Hohndel pointed out that RPM packages 
include licence information; the DEB package management as used by 
Ubuntu and Debian doesn't have this information in the package files. By 
having licence information available, developers can create software 
collections by licence type or exclude software with certain types of 
licences."
