Re: Time for a name change?


Gubuntu for me too. Relates well to the other spins as mentioned prior to
my saying it and I could possibly even say that with the welcome the
project has had, I doubt there could be any further confusion. Stating it
as 'Gubuntu' will only affirm, if not confirm the willingness of becoming
official and abiding by the Ubuntu standards to do so.
