What associations would exist in your mind if it were called "InternationaleOS" and the first expression of it were named "Comrade"? Just work out the opposite and you might want to reconsider

Edited - sorry, should have been a reply to the previous poster.

That would only work in English as a pun. The Nazi greeting was 'heil' not hail. Even as a joke, that's sort of in bad taste.

Well, it was not meant as a joke in bad taste - if I can make this connection, so can others, and it might be advisable therefore to call it something else. We've just had the BNP voted in here - call me oversensitive if you wish but rebranding might be in order.
