Of course, this could be code-names but I thought of naming the components
of OBOS.
I thougt of something like "Odin" (highest wiking god) for the kernel,
"Thor" (god of thunder and flashes = sound and light) for the media-server,
"Freya" (god of fertility) for the GUI and so on.

I think that the fact of making fun of Aqua is too obvious in Terra.
Furthermore I don't like the idea of making any connections to the GUI of
Windows (=> Luna). BeOS is something completely different! (But generally I
also like your idea of using "elemental" names!)
