Then, as the risk of repeating myself, yet again, the only option you
have if you don't want to explain that, is to become your own legal
entity, because I can see you answering  "other" questions if not about
linux, about other things... and seriously
 how much effort is to explain it isn't going towards linux anyway? Far
far LESS I imagine than the 20 plus posts you have made arguing for a
name change I'm sure in this thread, especially when all you're doing is
saying the same thing, just worded differently each time.
