Found this at the begroovy forum concerning names for
the OS.  Using Egyptian names: OSiris or EyeSys.  The
sodom/gommorah part is funny too. Greek, Egyptian,
Mayan, Babylonian names, symbols could be a good
starting point.

I think the copyright on these symbols (not these
specific files)has expired - unless AOLTW TMed those
too.

Some are great images to apply to the functions of an
OS.
Also fits well into the ObOS stones theme.

OSiris/EyeSys(<-?)synergy is a neat word play too -
reperesentative.

I like the link with civilisations who were
technologically or spiritually advanced.

Apps too..
papyrus - text editor
inca - word processor
A-Ztec - helpfile indexer
sodom/gomorrah - wine/vmware type things
nurbana - someones one step ahead
