What's in a name?
I have a Windows Vista desktop PC - it works fine, despite my grumblings at the time I replaced my previous Desktop with it. I also have a lap-top with Windows 7 on it - and that too works fine, despite my grumblings at the time I replaced my previous lap-top with it. As far as I can discern, the OS's name has absolutely no bearing on its efficacy or likeability
What's in a name? You could call the OS 'Rasputin the mad monk' and some people would love it and some would hate it. All that really matters is whether it works or not - does it have the functionality you want ; does it work without glitches ; will it run your software without holding you to ransom ; is it innocuous and not demand a Doctorate in Astrophysics just to manage its basic config settings etc? These are the things that matter - not its name.
So, call it what you like - just make sure the damned thing works.
