New distro name

Post#1 by brokenman » 28 Dec 2010, 11:11

I kind of like 'FanthomX' as a distro name. Please make some other suggestions so we can get the ball rolling.

Sorry guys - no go.

this is not MY project. it's OUR project.
i like the logo but we must find better name which has connection with mobility/portability, etc.
FanthomX tells nothing to new users.

My 2 cents.

EDIT:\\
The Alien logo is simply great!

@fanthom:
There are in nature very interesting forms of livings. When you invoke the essence of what is or we wish the OS to be, like portability, ... , you are providing some cues as to what could be the image or the logo of the OS. Why wouldn't you continue describing remix in terms of its essential qualities. This would be the ground work so to find some valuable and representative logo.

This preliminary description could help find some examples in nature or space or imagination. For example, Salix is a tree, that represent strenght. It has been used by the slackware derivative distribution of the same name, see:

Great submissions, all!

In honor of the alien logo that folks seem to like, what if we called it UFO linux?

I have yet to think of a great acronym, but something along the lines of Universal Fast OS, or the Universal FanthomX OS?

I'll keep thinking about it...

ETA: Or, UFO Linux: the Ultimate Featherweight Operating system.
Please take a look at our online documentation, here. Suggestions are welcome!

very funny Jay.
i love the fanthom logos (maybe we could keep it in the background, splash or something) but no go with 'fanthomX' for sure :)
what about trivial PLOS?
Portable Linux Operating System
i know it sounds like PClinuxOS but i'm out of clues at the moment.
