Mine is too old these days. She wants to see Sleepy Hollow instead ;-)

Well, the connotation of Weeze is "difficulty breathing" with I don't
think we need to associate with a distribution, even if it is true.

Zorg? Wasn't he in "Fifth Element"? Anyway, unless we are going to compete
with AT&T Unix, I don't think we need any "evil dudes" as a distribution

Now, after all that negativity, the positive: Bullseye sound great for the
next release; maybe we should rename Potato to Stinky ;-) and Jessie has
all kinds of Freedom associations, so it might work too.

At the rate we are getting releases out, there should be a new "Toy Story"
out before we use up these new names...
