I'll just add a quick note in support of Remix as a name -- that would also show respect for the Slax from which it came. We owe a debt to Tomas' work.

@Burninbush @Falcony @all

'Proteus' sounds nice but is too common - google gives 4,780,000 hits.
i think we can go with 'Porteus' - only 184,000 :)
Porteus is a merge of 2 words 'portablility' and 'Proteus' (Greeks god of the sea, capable of changing his form at will - lets say that it's a synonym of 'flexibility').
So we have portable(small) and flexible(modular) in one name :D
Only 'fast' is missing, but it's still very good.

Since it sounds like the matter hasn't been settled yet, i like the start in 'Proteus':

"Prot" as in "proto" (the begining of something)...

A very good choice: PROTEUS and if its already taken out there, let's use PROTEUS-X

Sorry, it has been settled. The new name 'porteus.org' has been registered. Please comment on and choose a logo in the general chat thread, porteus logo
