There's one advantage to this distribution name. It generates interesting
discussion on IRC:

<CosmicRay> hehe...  David Welton: "And you find 'potato' compelling?" :-)
<JHM> CosmicRay: the problem with potatoes is that freezing them doesn't really improve them.
<Joey> Ray: args
<Joey> Ray: So freezing potato will become a bigger desaster?
<netgod> heheh
<JHM> Joey: we could of course rename it to "frozen fries" in anticipation of a freeze.
<CosmicRay> hehe
<ruud-at-work> JHM: rotfl
* CosmicRay/#debian-devel ponders making Debian Potato Guns :-)
<JHM> Or would we need a .uk version "frozen chips" then?
<Joey> ray: Please quote this conversion and send it to -devel :-)
