I'll be voting (No) to this proposal, not because I'm against name change but
because I disagree with this particular name change.
Not only do I agree with the bulk of no objections thus far but more
importantly for myself, changing the name from "Linux Australia" to "Open
Source $Anything" represents a *significant* watering down of the ethical
position that for me at least, has underpinned LA from the start and the
LUGs that preceded it.
I'd support a name change that was more representative of our activities but
not one that waters down our ethos.
