I am a recent lurker who relatively recently started using Solaris (2004
with Solaris 9 on used Ultra 2 and 5 + Solaris 10 on ultra 20). I don't
know how valid my input is - I certainly haven't done any programming work
on any of the components.
Keeping that in mind: I really like the 'zonos' name. It reflects the
most famous recent 'killer feature' of Solaris besides zfs and it rolls
off the tongue easily.
zonos/ZONOS is also visually symmetrical which lends itself well to logos
and the like.
The name is also simple and sounds 'professional' for lack of a better
word. It also doesn't directly bring up associations to things like linux
does to linus or refer to silly animal mascots.
Just a thought.
