i haven't wanted to get dragged into this discussion too much, as it
seems like many people have put so much energy into it and we're still
struggling with a good name.

but i too have been a little unhappy with DIS. or DISh? the silent H
makes it particularly confusing to me. and having both, makes it more
confusing yet.

i think Remix has a lot of the same problems that Custom has had- it
suggests something that may be clearly based upon, but not necessarily
part of the whole.

"Integrated" seems like a really good descriptive word, but something
about "Solutions" doesn't really seem to say anything to me.

what's been swirling around in my mind:

Debian Integrated Projects? Integrated Debian Projects? Debian
Integrated Distribution? ...

Integrated Debian Distribution (IDD)?  hmmmmm...  seems pretty direct
and to the point, with little room for confusion- dare i propose IDD as
a real contender? :)


live well,
