Why the Name Devil-Linux?
Why did we chose this name ?
Well, there is absolutely no relationship to "The Devil" or to BSD.
When I decided to create my own Linux distribution I was discussing, with my friends and the people in my company, how I should name it. We didn't find a good name, so the first unofficial releases had the name "NoName-Linux". One day we (Michael Wahlbrink and me) discussed again about the name and he said: why not "Devil-Linux" ? I said: hmmmm, I like this name! But where the hell did you find this name? He said: Look on your T-Shirt! I had a T-Shirt from a German Linux Magazine and there was a Logo, like the BSD Devil, on it.
So we decided to go with this name, that's all. ;-)
