Point is, what if it was renamed to Walter? What people tend to forget is 
that the OpenBeOS project belongs to its developers and, in the end, we 
get to decide anything about it (including the name). We decided to let 
the community help and, in the end, all we got was moaning, (bad) 
criticism and bitching. We learned our lesson though. From now on if my 
vote counts on making stuff like that public or not, it will be for not 
making it public. I won't make the same mistake twice in a row.
