Linux distro with appropriate name

Who do you think have the most easy, cool, beauty name from Linux Distros?

Sabayon

Chakra

Mageia

Slackware

OpenIndiana

Sabayon is my favorite name out there.
Zabaione (Italian pronunciation: [dzabaˈjoːne]; written also sabayon, zabajone or zabaglione [dzabaʎˈʎoːne]), is an Italian dessert, or sometimes a beverage, made with egg yolks, sugar, and a sweet wine (usually Marsala wine)

Re: Linux distro with appropriate name

I'll have to admit, I didn't care for it at first but it has grown on me..

BunsenLabs

When following the discussion on the #! forum, I was a bit disappointed but considering the 'Bunsen' reference to Sesame Street, the awesome artwork and the periodic table release titles.. It just all works for me!    smile

I'm not actually sure which one has the most beautiful name, all of them are beautiful in a different way.

Sincerely speaking, it's not a name I'd have picked, mainly because I was never a fan of Bunsen burners from school. No accidents or anything. They were just utterly uninspiring. I mean, as a kid/teen growing up, how the hell was I supposed to get into the mood for learning with a punyhamsterfuckin Bunsen burner compared to something like, say, a Cosworth V8 or something?!! Plus the kinds we had their gas piped from valves at the lab, so we couldn't even knick one on those days we forgot to bring lighters for smoking on the school roof. But hey, it was a functional appliance, just like a distro, so everything's good, I suppose.

Re: Linux distro with appropriate name

I ask myself WWBP "What would Bob Pick" and of course Slackware... how much cooler can it get.

I do like bunsenlabs and the name has grown on me.

Re: Linux distro with appropriate name

I like the sound of Sabayon linux and I even ran it back in the day. Following that my next favorite one that rolls off my tongue is SuSE Linux.

I wish there was a /. linux.

Re: Linux distro with appropriate name

Whoever invented the name Red Hat, stands out of the crowd. Fedora gets easily connected with the other hat. Besides, fedora's are practical.

Semplice uses progressive rock related version names, like "Comfortably Numb" or "Jethro Tull".

Can't possibly think of a better endorsement of the BunsenLabs name. cool  The dark look common to CrunchBang and BunsenLabs says "oohhhh, look how edgy and different we are!" but the functionality out-of-the-box?

Re: Linux distro with appropriate name

^ It is an appropriate name.  Both the name and the concept of a bleeding-edge Debian-based distro are very siductive.

It's a clever word play, but aptosid has the coolest mascot of them all. (I know it's a scorpion, but I see a cute crab with braid.)

In BunsenLabs, Only Thing I deeply Hate Is CamelCase, but it's the Way of the World.

Re: Linux distro with appropriate name

Is it strictly CamelCase? Wouldn't that be bunsenLabs then?

Apparently there is UpperCamelCase (or PascalCase) as well as lowerCamelCase.

I'm all for separating out the two words i.e. Bunsen Labs.
