Help Mandriva choose a name for its community distribution

Mandriva is in the final stages of launching the community edition of Mandriva Linux. And they are asking for your input – to help choose a name for that community edition.

What do you need to do?

Here is the official announcement:

Starting now, we have opened a poll that will let you pick the name of the future distribution (and its foundation). In the future, Mandriva as a brand name will remain the name of the company (Mandriva S.A.) but the community itself will have a different name and a different branding, although it is also possible that the brand and the name will keep a tight connection with Mandriva.

We had to prepare the available choices; we came up with some names during the meeting in Paris, we also listened to some ideas expressed on the Foundation mailing list. Last but not least we left the possibility to send us suggestions for other names. If a suggestion appears to be really popular we will consider it provided it’s available of course.

How does the vote work?
