Ok, I know that this isn't strictly related to the game, but I play OpenTTD quite a lot and I figured I'd ask my favourite Internet forum community!

In the future, I'd like to design and build a smartphone OS. I have a basic idea of the operating system's features and functionality, but I'm stuck on one area:

Its name.

Can anyone think of a cool, catchy name for a smartphone OS? If you can, please let me know!

Oh, and one more thing, what's the best way to build a metro train system within a city? And is there a way I :D can put stations on bridges and in tunnels? :D

Perhaps off-topic would have been a better place for this?

Im curious as to exactly who is going to use this new OS.

How will you get smartphone companies to make phones that use it. Who is going to design apps for an unknown OS.

This seems like a pipe dream.

There are way more important things to work out before naming, trust me.

I say: keep it simple. S.OS. For smartphone OS. Also totally doesn't have any negative connotations.

(why do I feel this is a spam bot? ^^).
