My problem with the name is that it conveys two different things, none
of which I want in my linux distribution.
The term "Beefy" does not chime with a lean and efficient distribution.
Wiktionary lists two non-meat related definitions for the word "beefy".
3. (informal) Strong or muscular.
4. (informal) Sturdy; robust.
Both seem to be rather desirable qualities in a Linux distribution. :-)
The term "Miracle" is something that is even worse. It is
phenomenon that can not be explained (except by divinity). Do we really
want that in a linux distribution?
There may well be other interpretations that come to mind, but these
are what came to me right away.
I did not know the proceedings for voting or even that it was on, so it
is correct, I did not vote. Of course, that gives me no voice (which is
appropriate). However, it does not preclude me from having an opinion.
