My opinion is that ROSE provides wrong perception for underlying technology. There is nothing of that color in there, really ;).

As for FreeNT, it's a quite trivial name for the OS itself, like you know, ReactOS was once called FreeWin95. Such names provide a perception that people behind the project didn't have enough imagination at least to create a new name, not to tell about creating a new product (FreeDOS is an exception though, because there were many DOSes, and one of them had to be a Free one).

I'm not even saying about legal consequences of using a FreeNT name for anything close to Windows really.

Yeah, I'm not sure of the legal consistences of naming it FreeNT either. But I like that it's trivial name. I think that's what I like about the name FreeDOS.

What about a name that reminds of components of wine? Something like Ethanol, or better.. Fermentine, you know, ferments are the ones that make all reactions to occur in wine, plus "to be in ferment" means that something is alive and full of energy, that grows, and so on.. just my 0.02 ;)

ActOS - ReactOS

Action - Reaction (ActionOS - ReactionOS)

Ok, I know this is Right out there among the doo-lally cookoo land thinking...

but I was thinking something based around

collaborative ---------- [ Col ]
Open Source ---------- [ Os ]
Operating System ---- [ Os ]

--- >> Col.Os.Os

it describes what it is
it emphasises the Open source nature of it
and it memorable

It can probably have some good 'minimalist' graphics designed around a silhouette of a 'colossus' which give the feeling of power and (if it were packaged it with a native AV and FW... ) safety

I have no sketched design right now, but I happen to really like this Idea :-) maybe do my own variant under this name! :lol:

Oh also: hello, I registered especially to make this post.

AGAIN and AGAIN. ARWINSS is not OS and not NT- it's win32 Subsystem

So you say the name should be: AINOAN-IWS ?
Just like Wine sometimes is claimed to mean: Wine Is No Emulator?
:twisted:
Starts to get complex...
How about RosA?
It's an old Swedish girls name frequently used as name on a cow. With a cow as mascot of course.
