Well, before renaming Haifux to Haifos or HaiFOSS or HaiFree (because you may 
discuss open/free content too) or whatever, I should note that I'm not 
absolutely sure renaming the Tel Aviv club to TelFOSS was a good idea. Some 
drawbacks to note is that there are still the logistics of the name change, 
and the fact that it fragments the existing referrals (in web searches, on 
correspondence, etc.) and that focusing on Linux is more concrete and less 
presumptious than "The Haifa Open Source Club". 

Oh well. "Let the flames begin!"? ;-)
