Ummm... errrr....

Well, it's something I've spent quite a while thinking about...

The problem is, I don't actually much like the name. I originally made it up because it started off as a slight modification to the Oroborus window manager, by Ken Lynch (see OroborOSX v0.1 -a standard, 'unix-based' window manager), but designed to look a bit better with OS X.

Then I figured out how to do some neat integration by turning it into a Carbon app...

What I really want is to change the name -make it more evocative of a "Complete Environment for Running X11 Applications on Mac OS X" (CERXAMOSX!).

Any suggestions would be most welcome...
(Maybe I should run a competition ;-)
