Personally, I don't mind the name as it is. Plus, I like it when a suite's binary has the same name as the suite itself. But: how feasible might it be to design DSSS's binary such that the actual name of it doesn't matter? Maybe that would be better for some. Or not, I really don't know. Since this is supposed to be suggestions, how about: dmand -- as in the 'ondmand' suggestion already made, but a bit shorter dmerge -- as in 'emerge' on Gentoo... ;) Probably /too/ similar for safety, though dport -- as in 'portage' ... but that's not exactly right desire -- *shrug* dsc -- D.S.SS C.lient?

I wouldn't mind that. In discussing DSSS with a buddy I was actually pronouncing it as DS3 anyhow.

That's not a problem at all. I firmly believe in airing *all* the possible suggestions, even if they're not always stellar. That's because "good" is highly subjective when it comes to things like this. Edison: "Genius is one per cent inspiration, ninety-nine per cent perspiration." Which follows up to a corollary that is often attributed to him: "I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work." You'll find the right name for this thing. The question is: will you have to sit down with the 'D' section of the encyclopedia to do it? ;) PS, Not to thread-jack, but I found this blurb on Wikipedia, that sounded eerily like another stereotype that we're all too familiar with around here: The day after Edison died the New York Times contained extensive coverage of Edison's life, with the only negative opinion coming from Tesla who was quoted as saying, "He had no hobby, cared for no sort of amusement of any kind and lived in utter disregard of the most elementary rules of hygiene" -- - EricAnderton at yahoo

PS: "Later that year the US Supreme Court upheld Tesla's patent number 645,576 in effect recognizing him as the inventor of radio." "Immediately after Tesla's death became known, the Federal Bureau of Investigation instructed the Office of Alien Property to take possession of his papers and property, despite his US citizenship." "Tesla had been continuing work on the teleforce weapon, or death ray, that he had unsuccessfully marketed to the US War Department. It appears that his proposed death ray was related to his research into ball lightning and plasma and was composed of a particle beam weapon. The US government did not find a prototype of the device in the safe. After the FBI was contacted by the War Department, his papers were declared to be top secret." I mean, wow! :) ~ Clay

+1 dsss, desire, dsrc I've decided I don't care for dmand that much afterall... just because having the D at both beginning and end seems awkward to me. -- Chris Nicholson-Sauls

yeah, shared source does remind me too much of ms. I'd like more something like D'Vault or D'Store or D Wallet or D Walter :-) or D Grok or D Pearls or D Code or ... there should definitively be a capital D in it roel

This guy might have a point, 'dsss' is not a name that sticks. And it doesn't exactly roll off the tongue. I think it would be nice to give what might become a central tool for D users a more branding-friendly everyday name. And one that is easier to pronounce. So I'd like to suggest 'dsoft' as the new name. Simple and descriptive, almost to the point of being boring. It's only two syllables, and completely without any puns. $ dsss net install mango $ dsoft net install mango

They better learn how to use alias'es in shells. Or: $ echo -e "all: *\n\tdsss build" > Makefile and use "make" instead of dsss build Don't change the name. It's perfectly fine. Not too long, not too short, easy to remember and unique enough.
