I would like to stay as close as possible to CentOS name, because it 
practically is CentOS, with third-party repositories enabled. Intention 
is to provide easily installable packages from various repositories, but 
I have no desire to make it into developing distro, just a bunch of 
carefully chosen and above all as stable as possible packages sitting on 
top of the CentOS (with as little as possible replaced packages) that 
will attract Desktop users wanting stability above all, but not 
knowledgeable enough to decide what package from what repository they 
are to chose.

I have not made any decision yet about a name, and I am very well aware 
of negative implications some proposed names have, that is precisely why 
I asked for a fresh perspective and additional input. I did not want to 
put any ideas into your heads, but I have chosen instead to hear your 
original sentiment.

Problem with CentOS-DE I see is that it consists of two words when you 
say it, it would be better that it is one fluid word that clearly 
defines it in conversation.
