You are completely right, but if we do not find a neutral name for the
beast it will not step forward.  I guess if we *really* decide to name
nobody will flame us with law problems.  Not that I would *really* like
this idea - I would prefer w32 like you - but if the project would fail
to start only because we fail to find a name it would be a shame.

Moreover I think that people who observe Debian will find out quickly
what is hidden behind such a name :).

Kind regards
