Default A name for an embedded FreeBSD-based OS

Hi,

Could anyone help me come up with a fancy name for an embedded OS based on FreeBSD? A short acronym would do, the problem is, whatever meaningful I come up with, turns out to be a brand or a registered word.

Any suggestions appreciated.
Thx!

But, as to the OP's request, NetBSD wasn't based on FreeBSD. Oh well, details.

Thank you. I just hope I get remembered when it's a big commercial success story.

Substitute CMOS for something else.. doesn't make any sense in this context.

Yea, maybe "Computer" works better ... and that's about all the optimization this thing deserves.

Anyway, glad someone enjoyed it, and apologies to nimnod for the interruption.
