I guess it depends on your definition of "product". By one
definition, Fedora would not be considered a product at all. It is
not something that Rad Hat bundles with a support contract and
sells. By another definition, it is a hybrid product, with
contributions from Red Hat and independent developers.

As far as configuration and structure, The difference between
Mandriva and Fedora is about the same as the difference between
different releases of ether line. Compared that to the differences
between Debian/Unbuntu, Slackware and Fedora. (I do not know from
personal experience, but I have heard that the difference between
Debian and Unbuntu are about the same as between FEdora and Mandriva.)
