I think Phoenix-MSX or just Phoenix would be nice. Since we're talking about a resurrection.

I think they should just re introduce the name MSX. Which stands for Machines with Software eXchangability....That's the genus, so to speak. From there, different machines get different type numbers. But every product is an MSX machine.

We're not talking about changing the name MSX, we're talking about what to call an MSX!
Is it a personal computer? Is it a home computer? Is it a personal home computer? (all names that appeared on MSX machines)

in my opinion, if you use the MSX to play a game it's a "home computer" but if you code something or edit music or graphics it's a "professional computer" or "personal computer" and so on...

today I think this kind of division doesn't have sense... future MSX would be simply a "computer", like PC or Mac

Well, there are no plans for a new MSX computer to compete in the PC and Mac marketplace.
How can it, they are completely different markets. PC's and Macs are changing constantly, 'standardization' is simply not there (in hardware, pure software API standards like DirectX or OpenGL are something different).

But indeed, perhaps an MSX computer should indeed just be called 'MSX computer', as really, the name says it all.

I agree completely.....It's an MSX Computer. Not Home, Personal, Console, or whatever....
