One Problem (Score: 3, Insightful) by firstname.lastname@example.org on 2014-11-28 21:04 (#2VAY) 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?

Too early for that.If you have to explain how to pronounce it, you lose interest of potential users.Ummm... don't think so. How do you pronounce 'Qt'? I rarely speak names, since I mostly communicate with colleagues via mail or forums. And Devuan is very good for googling.

The V in the middle is clearly a reference to SysV. It's short, simple, and I'm imagining a logo like dV, which would work.There are far worse names out there - just search this site for Friday Distros.

Perhaps if this was more widely known some people would not bother submitting crap casino games if they knew :) Re: One Problem (Score: 0) by Anonymous Coward on 2014-11-29 02:58 (#2VBC) A woman who divorced Ian?Yea that really proves something, maybe not what you're getting at.When Debian was named the Ian was a romantic.Now he's a realist. No reason to change the name tho. No airbrushing of history. Re: One Problem (Score: 1, Funny) by Anonymous Coward on 2014-11-29 04:47 (#2VBH) Thanks for the history lesson. Never knew that.Now I am wondering if the hard heads will come forward and demand that .deb be changed to .ian with a distro name of IanMaybe we could have a poll to see what names Debian would be if this held sway. Ian? Ianalone? Iandme? JustIan? IanOne? Ianian? This could be humorous (special note: only for those with a sense of humor) :) Re: One Problem (Score: 1) by firstname.lastname@example.org on 2014-11-29 10:08 (#2VBV) Wow, I never knew that either. A better lesson for 'why not to do business with/name things after people you love' has never existed.I were him, after the divorce I would've renamed it "Dorkian" or "Dumbian" as a reminder.
