Skolelinux as a brand name is well-established and the dual name is
mostly there to satisfy situations when people do not know the heritage
of the Latin word. Please see this link for an overview:
http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/skole - It clearly shows how
widely used the word 'Skole' is in terms of education.
I strongly object any change of name.
