And the most significant change: We're changing the name of the forum.
I'm considering Azure Echo to be the beta stage name for the forum; it was two words chosen from a racehorse naming web site.
We're now going to have a new name (which we havent come up with yet), which will actually be related to the forum's content. Some really cool-sounding related to freedom, free-ness, up-with-the-underdog-ish... or some type of symbolism would be awesome.
Any suggestions from anyone would be greatly appreciated. An example of an awesome name is Aptana, the free IDE editor. It's got that nice ring to it.
