It's just an idea, as for now there is no real name alternative. It can be PortWine, WinePort, anything...

But what Wine thinks about it? It can be legal, but not ethical to use that name without their consent.

Portwein afaik is german version of name, and english is Port wine. And reading of word is the same in both cases. And i don't think it would be nice idea to call arwinss with german word.(because Wine also uses english version)

Why? ReactOS is a German project, in a sense. :)

The word "windows" can't be trademarked because it's a generic word. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
On February 20, 2004, the developers of wxWindows announced that the project was changing its name to wxWidgets, as a result of Microsoft requesting Julian Smart to respect Microsoft's United Kingdom trademark of the term Windows.

Yes, but it's Windows (R), not Window. If someone would want to register "Wines" I guess they could succeed.

The project should be named Window OS.
As part of the licensing settlement, Microsoft paid an estimated $20 million, and Lindows, Inc. transferred the Lindows trademark to Microsoft and changed its name to Linspire, Inc.
