Netscape Directory Server (NsDS), now Red Hat / Fedora Directory Server,
runs on _most_ Linux distributions, Windows, Solaris and a few other
platforms.  It is _not_ distro specific -- I've seen it deployed on SuSE
and Debian as well.

It's like saying Red Hat Database is distro-centric, even though it's
just PostgreSQL.  Call it what you will, and other distros that adopt
the former NsDS will definitely not call it a Red Hat trademark.  ;->
