Rethinking the name of distribution.

After picking the name Devil Free BSD I thought about the name some more.

In reflection, I realized that the name I chose was actually ambiguous.

Sure, my inent was to convey that my prayers caused the source code to be devil free; however, I soon realized that the name could be interpreted as the Devil's own brand of BSD.

There are many ways to approach solving this problem. One of the great things about Unix is that it is very flexible.

I could modify /etc/holyness.conf or /usr/local/etc/holyness.conf

Or I could create an evil cleansing service by creating a script in /etc/rc.d

But in truth, I favor elegant approaches akin to slackware, and /boot/loader.conf I feel will suit my purpses beautifully.

So, I just added the line:


And God's work was done.
