I always laugh when I see the name FUDcon and I agree they need to change it. It is very amusing however.

I agree its amusing. But I think that it is used appropriately. A lot of their user base use the acronym openly without knowing the three words attributed to its meaning. Its a jargon befitting Fedora users.

That's why in FUDcon's wiki front page there's:
======================================================
FUDCon: Fedora User and Developer Conference

FUD: An acronym for Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt. A typical tactic used by the opponents of open source to prevent its widespread adoption.

Con: In opposition or disagreement with; against.

FUDCon is all about fighting FUD.

======================================================
But it is not quite convincing... =]
