That seems to just refer to confusion, not mere reference. It is
likely that people will think that 'FreeSlack' is derived from
Slackware, as it is, but I doubt whether many will confuse it for
Slackware. Only part of the name of the Free distribution (FreeSlack)
is part of the name of a non-Free distribution.
