I really like the "Colemak: designed for your fingers" slogan, I think it sends the right message, and it's catchy enough.
I just want to clear up that public domain is even less restrictive than the BSD license, you can do whatever you want with it, which of course makes it suitable for inclusion in any type of software. Software like SQLite is public domain, and there's no problem of it being included in open source software. The good thing about public domain software is that it is guaranteed to be 100% compatible with all licenses and all types of software. From the Wikipedia Free software article:
The FSF categorizes licenses in the following ways:
* Copyleft licenses, the GNU General Public License being the most prominent. The author retains copyright and permits redistribution and modification under terms to ensure that all modified versions remain free for as long as the author wishes.
* BSD-style licenses, so called because they are applied to much of the software distributed with the BSD operating systems. The author retains copyright protection solely to disclaim warranty and require proper attribution of modified works, but permits redistribution and modification in any work, even proprietary ones, again, for as long as the author wishes.
* Public domain software - the author has abandoned the copyright. Since public-domain software lacks copyright protection, it may be freely incorporated into any work, whether proprietary or free. Importantly, software released thus goes completely out of control of the author, who, even if he subsequently so desires, cannot impose any restriction on its use.
Creating a better and easier installer for Linux is my first priority at the moment. Any help would be appreciated, of course.
