Grow up. It is pretty clear that few are interested in seeing a name
change and I personally like how OpenIndiana connects things back to the
roots of Illumos. If you do not like it, you are free to start your own
distribution and call it whatever you like.
Now if you wanted to contribute packages, had good quality contributions
and you are being excluded for some non-technical reason, then you would
have a case. Just because James was a bit more direct than others does
not mean he is trying to shut you up but is pointing out that this
change name thing is concluded.

>>> Illumos is the "core". We are a distribution of Illumos. Other distributions should also be derived from Illumos, not from us.
