And the Winner Is...

…Actually no one who commented on last week’s post, though thanks for all the great suggestions!

In the end we went for ZooOS, suggested by Jeremy Ottevanger on the Antiquist Mailing List (though the capitalisation is all ours). We like it because it’s got mixed etymological roots, coming from both Greek (zoo =  greek for animals) and Roman (os = bone in latin) but also because it has that essential Open Source ring to it. It’s pronounced “zeus” by the way…

Now we have a name, we also have a launchpad site!

Thanks again for all the suggestions- we think we might borrow one or two of them for other projects, so watch this space!
