I'd propose TUNES, which is a GNU-like acronym for:
 "TUNES is a Useful, Not Expedient, System"
and refers to J.S.Mill's Utilitarianism, criticizes today's OSes, is
a battle cry (being useful, not expedient -- i.e. think in the long run, do not
think about immediate profit of implementatin easiness, but about usability
for people years later), and it sounds as well as it can.

I just got this idea ('cause I'm jus reading the Mill's book), but I
really like it.

Any better idea anyone ?

If no one disagrees, such will be the mailing list (the sysop will
still be able to change or alias the name, or so I hope).
(This sounds like a ultimatum)
