Hello Geekos,

Do you think openSUSE should change it's name?

After reading 130+ emails I have changed my mind on this topic after each e-mail I have read. Finally I think I support the idea to have a different name for the foundation - like e.g. "Geeko Foundation" - and to stay with openSUSE for Tumbleweed and Leap.

I am afraid that renaming openSUSE would not be like Fedeora vs. RedHat. It would be more like OpenOffice vs. LibreOffice where many people are confused and they don't know wich one to choose. And if one day SUSE don't want that we use openSUSE in our names anymore we can drop it and just use Tumbleweed and Leap.

With this construction we can easily answer the question: "Who is in charge of openSUSE?" with "The
openSUSE community, represented legally by the Geeko Foundation, because they like to call themselves Geekos". ;-)

And I think that in the present age being in a very close relationship with an innovative Open Source company like SUSE is a huge benefit for openSUSE.

We really should not change our brand without a need, when this has no benefit to the brand.

Have a lot of fun,
Christian Imhorst
