h2. Choice of possible product names

The product naming of all software products that the ASF is hosting is "Apache Foo" where
"Foo" is the part that we have to find. So the product name has to start with "Apache" and
this is not changeable.

|| Proposed Name || Abbr. || Pros || Cons ||
| Apache OpenOffice.org | AOOo | We already have the trademark on "OpenOffice.org"
\\
Continuity with the legacy name of 11 years \\
Makes it easy to remember URL for website | Too long - 8 syllables \\
The ".org" naming scheme was popular circa 2000, but now is dated |
| Apache OpenOffice | AOO | A shorter name that respects the project's roots | Could conflict
with the general brand "OpenOffice" which is registered in a few countries, legal needs to
be involved |
| Apache Open Office | AOO | Of the options mentioned, this has the largest number of hits.
\\ This choice would be first in the list of "Open" TLPs (see list below). | |
| Apache Office | AO | | No recognition that this is a software product, could be also understood
as an official instance of the Apache Foundation. \\ Could be a version of Microsoft Office.
|
| Apache Office Suite | AOS | An accurate description of the product | |

h5. Position on [www.apache.org | http://projects.apache.org/indexes/alpha.html#N] project
