Yeah, but some of the current users would, and even if they didn't we
would be left with a really, really small userbase.  The name is
important, because it will attract people to the OS.  This may sound
silly, but the reason why I found BeOS was because I was bored one day and
typed in "www.be.com" by accident.  And at that time, I was looking for an
alternative OS.
