It's just marketing.  If you like Red Hat Linux, you might like Fedora, 
'a Red-Hat-sponsored and community-supported open source project':

If you want a Linux distribution that's maintained by and for its 
community (complete with a constitution, a social contract, and voting 
on major issues), you might prefer Debian:
