Remember there is already SimplyMEPIS. I don't think we want to sound too close to that.

I'm starting to like this one. We could have fancy 23 logos everywhere :) And a cool german C64 soundtrack: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GWAGvFGl6T8 :ugeek:

True...

But SimplyNux or SimpLinux do not sound like SimplyMepis
-> 3 syllables against 4..
-> Mepis doesn't mean a thing, Linux does...

Also Simplicity domains are already all taken... Not so for SimplyNux of SimpLinux

Last but not least, SimplyNux/SimpLinux convey the same message in many different languages.

:D

SimplyNux actually looks good to me. :D

Another thought: SimpleTux

To be honest: IMHO none of the suggested names so far are as good as "Zenwalk" :roll:

EDIT: We should not concentrate on a name that has the "simple thing" on first sight. It should be more like Zenwalk: the coolness/simplicity should more sound in the subtext/subtitle. I don't know how to explain this in english :oops:
You know: Zenwalk -> Zen computing -> Zen buddhism way of life... -> easy living....

EDIT2: Slothware - life made easy ;) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sloth

Lol....I though of simplicity....but all domains are already taken.

AndSweet is cool.

SimplyNux is also good.

.... and you're right thenktor...not as good as Zenwalk for now.

Believe me, back when Zenwalk was Minislack, we had a poll about possible names, and Zenwalk was a strange sound in many people's ears (including mine). It's in your head, that's all ;).

But I think that I like non techy names. We don't want to be geeks, we want to be cool guys 8-) So let's remove all the Linux, OS, *ix from the name and think of something stylish.

So true... I really thought it was weird back then.

If you really want to mimic Zenwalk... there is EasyPath... (not that I think it is a good idea though...) :lol:

Fine...

But since I really do like SimplyNux, I went ahead & bought it this morning.

I will use it for a professional project. ;)
