R: Re: Name status

Ok, I think the bottom line is the Art Group would create something new with the new name, or I'm Wrong?
So if I'm right, what's the Ultimate name for F10?
I don't want to waste time, it would be better if we start togheter workin on the new Concept ASAP.
Don't you?

Agreed on all points.  Josh Boyer did a good job compiling all the
