Name

As we already advanced in building the distro, and some tools and others things are coming, maybe it's time for choosing a name.
I don't have a name, but I have opinions :
- should be pronouncable
- not a derivate of "slackware" word
- meanfull

We could do "Alkoholix" with a K. That's kind of awkward, but at least alkoholix.org and alkoholix.com are not taken already. :)

A name, much like a logo, should convey, and resume in one single word, our main goal & philosophy.

BTW, what is our common main goal & philosophy?

What really matters is where you are going, not where you come from.

Yes, I think we have to write down an exact philsopy in Facts asap. Otherwise we'll end up with no straight line.
I think KISS should be one point and a democratic leadership meaning not only one leader but decisions are done together. Important is too imo, beeing open to the wishes and suggestions of users (in a way similiar to zendo) and to allow anybody to contribute.
