The amount of fanfare given for this announcement is much more than is warranted, but in any case I wish the team well. Based on one thing though, I do believe they have already shown that this fork is more an ideological exercise than an effort to make a distro that is better for users. Picking a name is important and the team has failed miserably. If you have to explain how to pronounce it, you lose interest of potential users. Why not just pick a simple name?

Agreed with the pronounciation issue, I see it as 'doovian'. This will not be the only distro with multiple names. Go Suse! Or SuSe. Or is that SoosE? Maybe Suzi? The slackers I once worked with spend several days debating this.

I think we had similar discussions about Ubuntu, back in the day: Is it /Ū/BŪN/TŪ/ or /Ə/bƏn/tū/ or what?

Face it: this was nothing more than a pretext to test |.'s Unicode support.

Result: |. got all the diacriticals but refused the smiley face at the end. Awright, no smileys here then.
