SoHo v5.8 needs a name
« on: May 04, 2007, 07:59:22 am »

Hello All:
seems we neglected to think of a name for SoHo v5.8. Last name for VL v5.8 was "Gold". Any suggestions? Other than

   "09 F9 11 02 9D 74 E3 5B D8 41 56 C5 63 56 88 C0"
LOL
Regards
Darrell

Please no.

We had a lengthy names discussion already: http://www.vectorlinux.com/forum1/index.php?topic=8512.0

Last name for VL v5.8 was "Gold"
That "name" means pretty much the same as "final".

I thought SOHO GOLD was gonna be the name... Since STD GOLD is the final for STD

Man that was so funny, four pages just about names and the pool winner was:

I think we should start making fun of Ubuntu.

I nominate VL SOHO 'Speedy'; other releases shall be named in a like wise...

Or we could do the XEmacs thing and use oxymorons: 'Common Lisp', 'Jumbo Shrimp', 'Military Intelligence', etc.

I think we should pick one from a "family or class" we could maintain in the future fot other releases. Is important to keep some consistence. For example, since "Gold" was the name of 5.8 std, we could pick other metal or a rock for soho, may be lagagnon could help us   :)
I like "Mercury"

Hey, there's no deep meaning in Gold. That's what you call final releases of software.

Personally, I detest those cutesy names that Ubuntu uses. Just give me the version number so I know where it is in the string of releases.

Yes, the numbers are a must. An additional name doesn´t hurt.

How would "VL Soho 5.8 Platinum" sound like?
Just a thought...  ::)

Nah, mercury is fickle and poisonous—like Windows ME.

Gold is good.  We could just stick with Gold for final releases.... Alpha, Beta1, Beta2, RC1, RC2, ..., GOLD!

When a version makes gold you know it's good ;D

Good as gold! ;)

To be perfectly honest, I agree entirely.
