New Fedora Name
For a few days now on the fedora-marketing-list has been proposals for the new names for future Fedora releases. It doesn't look like we will have a vanilla "Fedora Core 7" release.
Among the names brought up in the messages:
Fedora Sever Linux 7
Fedora GDesktop Linux 7
Fedora KDesktop Linux 7
Fedora XFDesktop Linux 7
Fedora Server Linux 7 (Naugahyde)
Fedora Desktop Linux 7 (Naugahyde)

Hmm. What's wrong with something simple, like Fedora Desktop? Personally, I think something like Fedora GDesktop Linux 7 is just foolish. "Fedora Collection"... lol.
Fedora Linux 7 works for me. I think in general, if Linux -really- wants to hit the desktop market then the names shouldn't sound so geeky, like "Fedora XFDesktop Linux 7". Normal people will look at that and walk away.
I personally would not be a fan of GDesktop, XFDesktop, etc...
I also would like to see it be Fedora Desktop, Fedora Server, etc... or perhaps even Fedora DE (Desktop Edition) WS (Work Station) or some other acronym.
Greg DK did a nice job describing partly the reason for the naming change: https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedo.../msg00135.html
