Re: Am I the only one...

Not sure it's that clear cut here. Pi and Pie may be spelt differently, but they're homophones and Raspberry Pi was always clearly a pun on raspberry pie with a mathematical tilt. It's not called raspberry 3.14 or raspberry 3 arctan 3^(1/2). As for confusing a piece of hardware with an OS, I think most people have heard the term "android phone", google even sell one themselves. Android Key Lime Pie is quite a bit different from Android Pie. I'm not saying google have set out to copy RPF here, but if you don't defend trademarks against infringement you lose them, and this is pretty close.
