[erlang-questions] The meaning of OTP...

Or to T or not to T.. Sounds almost like a Monty Python film, but is 
something which has bugged me since 2000... OTP was chosen at a time 
when Open and Platform were buzzwords higher management loved and 4 
years before Erlang was released as open source... There is a thread in 
the trapexit forum discussing the T in OTP.  Should Telecom be renamed 
to something more neutral (Transaction as been suggested in some 
contexts) before Erlang hits exponential growth? It would be interesting 
to hear the opinion of some of the old E-dogs who have been around for 
some time, as the point of view of most newcomers is obvious (Even 
though they are just as welcome to chip in :-) ). It is now or never... 
The thread is at:
