OpenStack, Outer Space & Left Eyes

I just realized that I have a conflict of abbreviation.  Common interpretation of “OS” in the industry is generally operating system, and sometimes open source.  To those outside the cloud industry, perhaps one-size, outer-space, or even oculus sinister (the left eye).

Not to minimize the importance of an operating system, a left eye or outer space, but for the sake of saying:  I hereby propose that the old-skool meanings of OS are obsolete.  Used in a naked context, or without clarifying qualifiers, the OS acronym shall now equate:  OpenStack.  Granted, I could be biased.  Just a silly thought this morning, there you have it.
