Change the name SuSE Linux, by its present name openSUSE Linux.

Feature state

openSUSE Distribution
Rejected Information


Change permanently, all that refers to the name of the old SuSE Linux for the new and current name, openSUSE Linux, the operating system and throughout the entire project site openSUSE Linux.

For example: SuSEfirewall2, could switch to: openSUSE Firewall 2.

Because now openSUSE Linux is a project Global (worldwide):
http://wiki.opensuse.org/Portal:Project .

No, there are other SUSE products, so it is perfectly legitimate to continue using SuSEfirewall2.

That's what you said is easy to solve, simply, rename the SuSEfirewall2 to a name that can be used in openSUSE Linux and SUSE Linux Enterprise. More now, the name SuSE Linux (or any reference to the old SuSE Linux), is no longer used because the old SuSE Linux does not exist, what exists now, is the project openSUSE Linux.

What is certain is change the name of all that relates to the former SuSE Linux, for new and current name: openSUSE Linux.

Just as a sidenote : The current name is openSUSE, not openSUSE Linux (and yes, SUSE Linux products still exist).

Do you have other examples of the usage of 'SuSE'?
The SuSEfirewall2 might be a special case because it's the
name of a package and binary and may be needed because of
compatibility reasons.

SuSE itself should indeed not be used but let's not change everything for the sake of it.
