Name: OpenMSX or OpenComputer.
Reason: Obvious. It's a customizable MSX/computer.

Hey, "we" already claimed openMSX ;-)

The "O" is in capital letters. Anyway I think it is a good name for the One Chip.

OpenMSX can be confused with openMSX, at least at the beginning of a line and if you don't
write or read, but just talk about it. OpenComputer is very much too unspecific, it can be used
for almost any system, regardless if FPGA is used or not!

Name: 1MSX
Reason: One for one chip.

Can be confused with MSX1 or the first MSX, which was released in 1983.
From a certain point of view, OCM is best because it's the first one chip MSX.

Name: MSX+ or MSX1+
Reason: It is like a MSX1 with some extras... remember MSX2+ times? Big smile

Sounds like an upgrade of already existing MSX computers.

wolf_:
btw.. there's REALLY an overkill of nominations already (of which some are joke'ish imho, no offence tho ).. you sure you want to have this topic running until aug20?

snout:
Yup, positive! Keep 'em coming! Smile

As the forum thread isn't hardly surveyable, why not making a list like the contacts list with items as follows:

  • current number
  • date of posting
  • name of the poster
  • proposed name
  • link to the posting with the explanation of the proposed name

which can be sorted by the items ''date of posting'', ''name of the poster'' and ''proposed name''. Only the names in this list should be considered as valid! This list could be generated and updated automatically. This would facilitate to create new names. To code a script for that also would be good for future challenges! This also would avoid trouble about suggestions which were posted but not apprechiated or taken into account, because the suggestion was considered a joke or not to be serious. With such an official list, the poster would be sure that his/her submission is valid. Maybe there also should be the possibility to discard suggestions by the poster.

CYOM Create Your Own MSX to encourage to program the fpga
I like that idea!

What about:

Name: CYO MSX
Reason: To emphasize the MSX

Name: CYO.MSX
Reason: To join the two terms with the dot.

Name: CYO'MSX
Reason: Create. Your Own Variant of MSX. With the apostroph to denote that it's a variant.
