A name is a name, just a name.
Like a dress it says little about what's underneath.
Whatever your feelings are, they are just that: feelings, not real things.
FWIM, we could even flip a coin in order to decide.
Whatever technical issue lies behind changing or keeping a name, it
can somehow be solved.
OpenWRT, Lede, OpenLede, LedeWrt, TheNextBigThing,
UnleashYourRouter... just throw a die!
