The SL people *really* want to reconsider their choice of terminology.

"Site" is already *so* overloaded that the amount of increase in cognitive load that it will impose on their audiences may be the straw.

Everyone else seems to be using "spin" for this particular object (a customized installable version of a distribution); does anyone know whether there's some specific reason they aren't?

Umm, perhaps because "spin" is also a terminology in physics?

Really nice to see that an alternate derivative (or perhaps just rebranding -- still a derivative) of RHEL has risen. SL and CentOS are gateway to taste the bliss of enterprise-grade GNU/Linux distro.
