I tend to disagree with your assessment there. OO has never really
progressed passed being a poor copy of MS Office 97. Tieing the new
nomenclature to the old product might prove counter productive. I know
several users who would avoid it just on that basis alone. A new name
with the appropriate PR might prove to be a boon for the product. I do
agree that the new name is lacking though. Obviously, no real thought
went into choosing a new product name. Unfortunate indeed.
