Thanks John!

Let me tell you that as an educator using this distribution of linux in my classroom with elementary school students ( I also have a hard time using the official title.

In fact, I was referring to it as DSLinux and Desktop Small Linux, so the DSLOS title and link works more than fine for me!  

As some posters have correctly pointed out, any open source project needs to be welcoming to others and shouldn't have to justify it's offensive title - and that's what "damn" is to most people - before anyone even explains to the newbie what it is and why they need it.

I could care less if the name got changed but
I like Dime Sized Linux :D
It has a ring to it and it's logical.
I also find it has this friendly feeling to it...


And then there was linux...

My original idea was Desktop Smart Linux. That is exactly what DSL is, no fluff just the useful things you need to get the job done.  :D
