Feature changed by: Thomas Schmidt (digitaltomm)
Feature #310156, revision 8
Title: Change the name SuSE Linux, by its present name openSUSE Linux.

- openSUSE-11.4: Unconfirmed
+ openSUSE Distribution: Unconfirmed
Requester: Important

+ Info Provider: Genix Info (genixinfo)
Requested by: Genix Info (genixinfo)
Partner organization:

Change permanently, all that refers to the name of the old SuSE Linux
for the new and current name, openSUSE Linux, the operating system and
throughout the entire project site openSUSE Linux.
For example: SuSEfirewall2, could switch to: openSUSE Firewall 2.
Because now openSUSE Linux is a project Global (worldwide):

#1: Jan Engelhardt (jengelh) (2010-07-19 19:22:45)
No, there are other SUSE products, so it is perfectly legitimate to
continue using SuSEfirewall2.

#2: Genix Info (genixinfo) (2010-07-21 22:36:07) (reply to #1)
That's what you said is easy to solve, simply, rename the SuSEfirewall2
to a name that can be used in openSUSE Linux and SUSE Linux Enterprise.
More now, the name SuSE Linux (or any reference to the old SuSE Linux),
is no longer used because the old SuSE Linux does not exist, what
exists now, is the project openSUSE Linux.
What is certain is change the name of all that relates to the former
SuSE Linux, for new and current name: openSUSE Linux.

#3: Rémy Marquis (spyhawk) (2010-07-23 12:14:08) (reply to #2)
Just as a sidenote : The current name is openSUSE, not openSUSE Linux
(and yes, SUSE Linux products still exist).

+ #4: Thomas Schmidt (digitaltomm) (2010-12-20 13:13:16)
+ Do you have other examples of the usage of 'SuSE'? The SuSEfirewall2
+ might be a special case because it's the name of a package and binary
+ and may be needed because of compatibility reasons.
