The name of the project should be logical rather than physical.  Users
will not understand m0n0core is a firewall.  Maybe you can find some
variation on the current product's name which still sounds like a
firewall but still not be mistaken for the existing FreeBSD based
system.

Users don't care if it has a fancy new core architecture, they want to
see something like "m0n0wall II" or "m0n0wall extreme" - something
creative. :-)

If you want to give it an internal pet name, I suppose you could start
using gemstones or something like that - and then you really haven't a
clue what it is just from the internal name.  Afterall, who'd have
guessed Longhorn is an operating system without someone telling you? :-)

 That's a good question! We could probably keep a partial "m0n0" in the
project name, and being known as m0n0Cored isn't so bad. But the reason
why
were not m0n0wall is because this is a new design/architecture, and
doesn't
fall in line with the current m0n0wall. I've talked with Manuel, and
he's
thumbs up with the idea of furthering this project, and hopefully being
able
to replace m0n0wall one day. Therefore, this is not m0n0wall, but a
venture
into what could be.

I'm okay with m0n0Core or m0n0Cored, but we need to differentiate
ourselves
from m0n0wall, as a m0n0wall derived project with intentions of being
the
"NEW" m0n0wall. Also, were deviating from the original FreeBSD OS, and
looking at a multi-OS solution that is BSD and Linux based.

I agree, and thats why were going to adhere to an Organizational Chart
with
specific duties.

and eventually one day merge back into m0n0wall once we've developed a
stable solution.
