Subject Re: Is C* common nickname for Cassandra?
Date Sun, 17 Feb 2013 21:46:06 GMT
Is hard to say, really. I guess just feels like not very serious, overly
casual, which mean not treating the project with respect? I guess I believe
if you want something treated with respect you must demonstrate how
seriously you take it oneself. I am sure this is personal opinion only, but
perhaps it is shared by others. Enterprise Pointy Haired Boss might make
purchase decision on this criteria instead of technical merits. You know
they make decision based on how pretty project logo is half the time :-)

Hope this helps
Boris
