Other than the OP, no one wants to actually change the name. So why are more suggestions being made?

I suggest we use the name ReactOS. It has brand name recognition and clearly communicated what the project is about.

0x5 to DoorsOS - that was a thing, kinda, and led way to this program...for graphing calculators.

Doors CS7

But, leave ReactOS as ReactOS is. There are more important things to be doing.

ReactOS is not PC!!! It is a reaction due to the closed source issue pushed by Micro Soft.

Pimp it somewhere else or fork your own.

The name is fine, changing the name would just confuse everyone.
