FC3 release notes -- unnecessary trademarks

Please add a descriptive phrase to the summary, and more in-depth
description here (be sure to note any arch-specific issues):
I guess you want to keep it simple not change the trademark section,
but I think this is not good. Almost none of the trademarks lsited
appear in the text. Removed could be:
Motif, UNIX, Itanium, Celeron, AMD Athlon, AMD Duron, Type
XFree86 should go for good. Maybe the RHEL4 relnotes need it to
declare the switch but it's already done for FC1->FC2.
Trademarks which might need to be added are AMD Athlon64 and AMD64
(one needs to check whether it is, I would guess so).
Good point about XFree86 -- I've pulled it. As for the AMD names you
mention, they are not trademarks (according to AMD's website). As for
the other trademarks, I'm leaving them.
Ugh, so you have to changed the one thing I found out is still
necessary. I overlooked that the relnotes still have the
xfree86->xorg switching explanation. Or did you remove that as well?
Anyway, it's your document, but I want to say I do not agree with
these boilerblate legalize. It should be accurate and apparently
needs to be researched every time.
FYI -- I checked with Legal and they said to pull all but our own. I
also left in Linus' Linux trademark as a nod to the community.
