That's the thing: Stux stands for the blobbed (tuxic :-) kernel.

It looks nice and appealing, but it takes effort to realize that it's
deprived of freedom.

I kind of like Freetz, but I can't say I'm in love with it.

It's one syllable, it has 'Free' in the name; it's a bit ironic in that
Linus wanted Linux to have been named Freax, it does sound like a pet
name, but it's hardly perfect.

I guess we'll always be open to suggestions, at least until one name
sticks :-)

How about this: whoever comes up with a name for, erhm, the penguin
currently-named Freetz gets a Free license to run, modify and distribute
Linux-libre! ;-)
