Linux At the end of October I attended the Alantejo Linux congress and LAN party, which was held in the city of Évora. Évora is a marvelous UNESCO World Heritage city which has from Roman ruins to 18th century buildings, not to mention the superb food. It is well worth the visit if you happen to travel to Portugal. At this meeting a conference was given by José Antonio León Moreno from the "Center of New Initiatives" in Extremadura (Spain) about the Linex project where he stated mildly that the Spanish region of Extremadura is using Linux on the desktop in the PCs used by the public administration civil servants of the region of Extremadura.

While many people critized the idea of renaming names, it's a fantastic idea, from a usability POV.

I mean, calling a music player "lennon" would be much easier to remember for users than "amarok"

I would vote for 'yellow submarine' myself ;-)
But in both cases, there is a risk of being sued..

Not really. But there is a risk of angering developers.
