That wasn't really my point (it was about their use of just one letter for
each desktop environment), but...
They all have disjoint development teams (though *some* do cross
distros in their development efforts) really the only thing they share
is a package repository, but so do distros like Mint.
This is an aspect of Fedora that I really like, I always felt it
foolish to have a different distro for each Desktop Environment.
... +1. :-)
That said, Kubuntu and Xubuntu aren't really completely separate either,
they're just marketed as such. They're really just spins from the same
repository. The way they're marketed as "separate" is really silly.
