I have to agree. The term I'm thinking of is intuitive. Someone should
be able to set down at a debian box once in a blue moon and remember the
administrative program's name. I only admin a sun box 2 or 3 times a
year, but admintool is very intuitive, so I don't have a problem
remembering it. I'm sorry Bruce, I know you've given this a lot of
thought. From what I gather so far:
1) needs to be a good length name (4-8 chars, 2 is too short)
2) not debian specific
3) not package installation specific
4) intuitive and memorable
Would it be too confusing if we called it "sysadmin" (sorry, when I can't
think of a term, I steal it).
