Yes, I know all that, but I believe that legacy can be carried on in an
elegant way without being influenced by e.g. the Indiana project.
Besides, the term "Open" is more or less superflous these days; people
care about things being open source etc., but it really doens't have to
be part of the name IMHO...not anymore.

Nevermind, I just suggest that we reconsider the "OpenIndiana" name,
after all, this is a discussion list and I personally have no say.
