Maybe, maybe, maybe, tweaking the branding to
avoid the lowercase O
is something to consider? Is that thinkable? Not a proposal,
a question. (Still not trivial, but a lot less effort and
than changing a name -- we have adjusted the SUSE logo some five
ago, for example, and that went relatively smoothly.)
What, giving up on the Sysiphus fight? ;-)
The wide masses did not care for the lowercase O for years now. And
care it's successor. Plus: changing the O still leaves us with
"OpenSuse" and "Open Suse" - or even "Open S.u.S.e".
So, it's just a small step and it won't have any measurable impact.
It would remove the openSUSE issue and keep the SUSE issue ;)
I would be shocked if SUSE made that mistake in that case, but there is
the whole internet out there.
