You in fact wear the best argument for a unique name in your sig. Who is
arguably the most successful Open Source company: Red Hat
What in gods name does a Red Hat have to do with software other than give them
a really cool logo.
This discussion is indicative, much of marketing is about creating buzz. I
would like a name that leads to a logo that is sexy enough for people to use
as a desktop background, Redhat does and Fedora and Firefox. I was looking at
the "LibO" abbreviation and the thing that I suddenly saw was LbD, or LBD
which is abrreviation for "Little Black Dress", suddenly I see a very cool
logo and marketing campaign and a buzz. One great thing is that LBD is cool
to both men and women, both groups tend to like the way they look.
What has it to do with Office suites? About the same amount that Computer
Operating systems have to do with Hats.
But dang what a buzz it would cause: An office suite that was sexy, now THAT
would be cool to market.
Graham, you & I think alike! But I should have thought of Red Hat when I
was hurling out examples. And... Hmmm.... a sexy office suite? I'm sure
someone could manage that, without it being also sexist.
