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
they won't
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.

At least it would fix dealing with word processors constantly "fixing"
