Re: Time for a name change?


Hey Lance, and all the others,

Just wanted to add my two cents. I also find the current naming to be a bit
confusing with past endeavours. (does Gnomebuntu ring a bell too?)

I agree an original name could be good for defining the flavour. (from a
marketing view)

To be honest, I really like Gubuntu. It's simple and relates to other
(active) flavours, Lubuntu, Kubuntu.

I really love this project and I enjoy promoting it. I don't do much work
so maybe this is a sneaky opportunity to also say thank you to all those
involved. Your work is really appreciated.
