This was discussed a little in the votation about the domain name,
What do you want the formal name of the operating system to be?
Options brought up so far:
1. "Parabola GNU/Linux-libre"
2. "Parabola GNU/Linux"
3. "Parabola GNU"
Both 1 and 2 have been the official official name so far.
Our latest news post (about parabola.nu) and the related wiki article
both use option 3. (by Charles)
Options 3 and 4 have appealed to several of us because it opens the
possibilites of other kernels, such as GNU HURD or kFreeBSD.
My argument for option 4 ("Parabola"):
* It's what we all say anyway.
* In hope of addopting other kernels.
* In agreement with sharkx:
> I voted for parabola.nu because it dose not have gnu in its
> name. While we follow gnu's philosophy of free software, we are
> not affiliated to the gnu organization as such. ".nu" has no
> meaning to me.
