I've decided to change "Open Builder" to another name that suits better the purpose of this application. Using "open" on a program that is not open source leads to confusions that would probably be best avoided.

This name could still be used, but I think it's probably wiser to change it now before the next 049 release is published.

So, I'm "open" to suggestions regarding a new name for this .script interpreter. It is an important step since the application is reaching a much more complete state on 049.

Please avoid names with "PE" since this .script interpreter can also be used to create other sort of bootdisks, the projects available at this moment are only for PE environment, but soon this can also change as well..

Thanks! :P

I've always liked the name "Boris"...
Alternatively, if you make up a word that no-one else uses, you'll get good search engine rankings free of charge

Ideas:
Windows Construction Kit (I think UBCD4Win got in trouble for using "Windows" like that, though, so maybe CK4Win)
Boris!Live
BootBuilder
XPLive
BootLandLive
Bootland Architect

Builder!Live might work in place of Boris if you *really* wanted to replace it. :P

Some more obscure names:
Daedalus - Greek architect that created the Labryinth and is seen as the creator of "images"

Imhotep - First architect in recorded history by name.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imhotep

Nimrod - Created the Tower of Babel

Nice suggestions, I think dog was right when he said:

make up a word that no-one else uses

Since this would definitively only output on google the results people are expecting to find.. :P
