Re: The End ... The Beginning ... And THE NEW NAME

Something I just now realized, OB(*) may not be the best naming convention (it's a tampon brand).

Re: The End ... The Beginning ... And THE NEW NAME

Good idea iMBeCil! Add the -ian from Debian and you have "Obsidian Linux." Works for me! Also, obsidian is dark in color, the dark side is strong...

Re: The End ... The Beginning ... And THE NEW NAME

Hi Imbecil, agree that names are important.
But, what about LXDE for example? That's also an OB based desktop environment. #! and derivatives don't have a monopoly on openbox.

Things are still pretty chaotic round here, but if a large section of the #! community seem to be coming together around a stable-based #!-like distro, then, sure, choosing a good name is an early priority!

Re: The End ... The Beginning ... And THE NEW NAME

I hate to be the one to do this, but to avoid collision, Janus is a film company (sorry).

Edit to add, that's something else to check on too, to see what kind of use a name already has. Some stuff probably isn't important, but some may cause an issue.

Re: The End ... The Beginning ... And THE NEW NAME

Keep 'em coming though. FWIW another project I'm in took about two weeks to name and it ended up as a combo of ideas so this still isn't something that is so rushed as to pick a final name just to have one (which is the flexibility of temporary working names).

Re: The End ... The Beginning ... And THE NEW NAME

Spins on OB- I like Obsidian for a spin tracking sid btw:

obang (ˈəʊbæŋ)
a Japanese gold coin, rectangular in shape, that is no longer in common usage and is only used as a ceremonial or special contribution

obligato- musical term meaning required in a performance.

obelisk

Oberon- (in medieval folklore) the king of the fairies, husband of Titania

In honor of or French #! friends
objet d'art- a small object considered to be of artistic worth

objet- a decorative object that is meant to be exhibited or open to view

Just a few words starting wirh OB culled from an online dictionary.

Re: The End ... The Beginning ... And THE NEW NAME

Thanks for suggestions ... Perhaps it doesn't have to be final name, but a working name ... to begin with something.

@chillicampari: didn't know that (which smiley to put here?)

@snowpine Excellent suggestion. If one asks me, that's perfect. (Or objessian ...)

@johnraff Don't really dig your comment ... Yes I know there are OB distros as well ...

@hinto Nice name, but if new spin is based on OpenBox, then I think it should be made 'selling-point' of the distro, and add it somehow in the name. I mean, how many non-bloat minimalistic openbox debian distros are there? Not many.

@IP It might be only me, but my brain constantly loose letter 'J' from your suggestion ... Although, 'Janice' would be good, too.

Re: The End ... The Beginning ... And THE NEW NAME

As for idea-based what really jumps out to me is the word "Community"
A quick check for synonyms turns up the word "Syndicate"
So partly inspired by CBiz babbles and likely a bit out in left field:
Syndicate of Incredible Nixers
Product: S.I.N.
Tagline: Come experience the dark side.

Re: The End ... The Beginning ... And THE NEW NAME

Boats and ships have been mentioned a couple of times in threads as metaphors, but I think we should think more about the wood and parts and reusing what we have for something more like creating a village. A spin could be part of that (and probably should) but we are not locked into one single thing.

Have a good night's sleep and catch ya later. smile
