The wide masses did not care for the lowercase O for
years now. And they
won't care it's successor. Plus: changing the O still leaves us with
"OpenSuSe", "OpenSuse" and "Open Suse" - or even "Open
Following that I want to give you a very recent example.
German "Linux Magazin" covered the name change voting today and mention the
wrong spelling issues as well;
(German: "Außerdem werde der Namen oft falsch geschrieben." = English: "In
addition, the name is often misspelled.")
Being around for 25 years now one would expect them to know openSUSE. And yet
they make the mistake themselves - in the very same article! Having a logo
image with correct spelling right beside the text!!
I don't want to blame or shame them anyhow. It just emphasizes the spelling
problems "openSUSE" has and will have in the future without changing the name.
