All said, my vote is for bsdports.org.  I think it has the best ring to it.  Also I think there are strong associations with the word ports ("I'm going to download the port tree and do a make world").

I'm also in complete agreement that we should keep our focus on the Open Source BSD world and try to stay away from the usual linux sillyness.


ps belonging to a bsd list I'd better get rid of this linuxstart address. ;-)
