Let's vote for the name
« on: February 20, 2015, 05:36:38 PM »
Based on the brainstorming about the name of the computer, I picked up the names that seemed to be the most liked and which were not to be mistaken with something else.

 I got rid of "PowerZen" in this list because it is used by pills for sexual performances. However, If you think this is not a problem, I may add it back.

Let's vote! :)

how about just "?"-ower (ie, power but using the greek letter for 'pi' instead?)
"?" is a letter denoting a universal mathematical constant, something really recognizable. Or some other similar form.

So, ?-ower for 1st model, ?-ower^2 (or ?^2-ower) for 2nd model, etc

Just an idea.

This one seems to get some interest. How would you pronounce it?

Pi-ower is great name but anglophone readers will tend to see greek p as a "m" so then pronouncing "?-ower" as "mower"... That's no good.
Or at least seen it as a piece of metal junk as a "mower" could also being of some sort of self-humor... ;)

So then a logo showing ?-ower embedded in a mower inscribed into a circle will be really great! :D

While regarding "PowerLibre" logo, let's check also here in the following site-link for kanji and chinese ideograms connected together.

(You know it... Keeping an eye to chinese-like ideograms logo too, could be useful to pay respect to the major market available nowadays and being apprecciated as response)

P.S. I had rather preferred multiple choice poll.

I enjoy ?-ower

I'm not sure how it becomes a mower , probably only by mixing a character ? with m. I like the idea of making a logo.

Hi,

Now that PowerBooks are not used anymore by Apple, I would like to use it for us :-)
Or alternatives like PowerTop or PowerLaptop.

I agree with Frank.Woo.  The prefix POWER is a must.

I have added PowerTop to the poll as PowerBook refers to existing computers. Even if they are not built anymore, there still are many powerbooks around.

None of the names is extremely appealing, but since its closed option I voted PowerTop :-)

Other then that FreePower64 (LibrePower64) would sounds more appealing, at least to me, while keeping the meaning
