Storm-LINUX - Hail! ??

Some years ago, around 2001, I got into the Linux/Unix world. My first Linux server ran Storm-Linux version "Hail!". It was some Debian derivative.
The funny thing is the name, which is very identical to this new Solaris-Ubuntu-merge.

Why is it called StormOS, and why particular "Hail" as the version? ;)
Are there any kind of relations to this old (surely dead by now) Storm-Linux?

Hi everyone (I'm new here),
I just found that: http://www.stormos.org/node/14
I must admit I had similar associations as orfanum.
