Tux Machines (TM)-specific
It's not unusual for Linux distributions to have somewhat offbeat names — Ubuntu (named after an Africa-originated philosophy), Red Hat (the creator of the original distro, Marc Ewing, had a red lacrosse hat given to him by his grandfather), and the wonderful CrunchBang Linux (named after the characters usually used at the start of a script — #!). In the case of Fuduntu, the origins of the name are quite simple: It's a combination of Unbuntu and Fedora, the Red Hat-sponsored Linux distribution.
Fuduntu started in 2010, with the first release of the distribution in November that year. It's a desktop distribution that was originally a repackaged edition of Fedora, but completely forked from the Red Hat distribution about a year ago.
