Re: GNOME -> Gnome


I am very much against this.

"Gnome" reminds of the the imaginary tiny creatures. At least you can
see "GNOME" is an acronym, and you can guess it doesn't have anything
to do with those.
If the argument is that the acronym isn't appropriate anymore, I
suggest finding a new a new one.
Also "Gnome" is visually very unpleasing. The "GNOME" type in the logo
looks very good.

I'd rather go with finding a new name than changing the case.
