Jangan bilang kalo nama-nama distro linux itu, diambil dari sembarang kata. Ternyata ada sejarahnya juga ya. Ini beberapa diantaranya aku kutip dari situs-situs terkait :
The meaning of Ubuntu is pretty much known by everybody in geekdom, just in case you have been living under a rock, Ubuntu.com definitions is: “Ubuntu is an African word meaning ‘Humanity to others’, or ‘I am what I am because of who we all are’. The Ubuntu distribution brings the spirit of Ubuntu to the software world.”
Pretty much obvious, 3 words jammed up into one, PC + Linux + Operating System.PCLinuxOS has a GUI that resembles Windows, in an effort to make switching to Linux easier. Hence the use of the word PC (even though PC is not exclusive to Windows, which is a misnomer)
openSUSE is the SUSE community project sponsored by Novell and AMD. SUSE is an German acronym for “Software- und System-Entwicklung” (”Software and system development”). However some claim that it’s a tribute the computer engineer Konrad Zuse.
