    Yeah OSiris is an Egyptian god, I was running through too many thing at a late hour so i messed it up a bit, but still, OSiris is a good name and you will be able to make nice logos with it… :)

    Ubuntu Go

    How about


    Fresh and Fruity OS based on Linux. And you can create cool Logos/Labels for it.

    Just downloading the newest version, got my eee901 yesterday and loving it already, cant wait to see it without the kinder egg desktop.

    Rune really stood out for me when I saw your list, but Fjord and Ion both sound very cool too.

    If you wanted a more geeky tint then there are a few cool words from the world of physics like: boson, baryon, hadron etc

    How about Ebente? Like Ubuntu, but with Uuu taken out and replaced with Eee?

    Seriously, there’s one staring us right in the face – Wheee! The sound you make when having fun on a ride at a fun park.

    Of course, if you want to steer clear of “Eee” to target other mini-laptops, you could always use “Mini Linux”. This will end up being a fork, won’t it?

    How about Leanux?

    I like Urban, followed by Ion. Words that are not made up sound better. And shorter is better than longer. Urban Linux, Urban OS. “My Eee PC runs on Urban.” “This isn’t the Linux the Eee comes with; it’s Ion.” They work, I think.

    how about Neeet?
    “Net” stretched
    I will now retire.

    I like “kiwi”. Makes me think “small” (like a netbook). But also probably tasty (never actually eaten the fruit). Oh, and it could also mean someone from NZ.. :D

    I’d simply call the distro Peeecix – refers to both netbook hardware and -ix OS.

    Bunteee, Buntee, Bunty

    I like Maroon. Maroon sounds nice and soft. In German this is the name of a mushroom. I like it.

    Rune and Urban are also good.
