Profile - Notable impression

First of all I think Illumos is great initiative!

Secondly I do believe that Illumos is a good name, BUT what if somebody contacted a graphic designer and made a better logo and profile. This is of course secondary to all other issues that needs to be resolved...

Anyhow, may I suggest a short name on this project. Because OS is short for "Operating System" and "Illum" is not a name itself and therefore we have the following combination: "iOS". Much shorter and quicker and catchier for the press, word of mouth etc.

Else, keep up the good work!!!

iOS is the name of Apple's mobile operating system, it could never be used without confusion. It could also be called just Illumos. I like Illumos myself :-)

For a distribution, "Moonshine". It goes along with Celestial objects (Moon), and Shine as in Rays of Sun. moonshine.org and moonshine.com both should be available, as they only have placeholder websites waiting for someone to buy it. Maybe it will be reasonable.

Oh also forgot to mention, Moonshine also as in really strong alcohol. Gotta love it.
