Re: Time for a name change?


UGE seems much better than my suggestion of UGD ;^)

I just grit my teeth every time I see someone use the acronym UGR.

I didn't realize there was a problem with "Gubuntu". It's sad the problem exists because it's the most sensible name.

Well, the idea is not to keep UGR but instead use UGE (Ubuntu GNOME Edition). To be honest, I still prefer Gubuntu and fact that Google have a "internal" (not public available) distro with the name Goobuntu (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goobuntu) don't looks to be a good excuse.

The only problem that I see with Gubuntu is the fact that domain is not available.

Hmmmm, what does "using using" mean?

Unfortunate typo ;^(

Maybe I should say it's past time for a name change ;^)

Using "ubuntu GNOME remix" has resulted in the unfortunate use of UGR as an acronym which could be problematic due to this failed project:


 know becoming an official "flavor" of Ubuntu can be a long drawn out process but I remember using Lubuntu as far back as Lucid even though it didn't become an official flavor until Oneiric:


Why can't we do "Gubuntu"?

Has anyone even asked?

If we can't do that yet why can't we change to using using "ubuntu GNOME desktop" so the new acronym would be UGD?

I really love this project because it will give us the opportunity to more closely interact with the Gnome devs and I'd hope our input can help shape the successful future of Gnome in
