IMHO, we have too many acronyms already. Acronyms are simply boring and not 
innovative at all. Schoolforge is simple and easy to remember. My vote.

Have you seen our open source project, MimerDesk? It's a lot like 
phpgroupware but will support education as well and not just the groupware 
stuff. There is also better communication available atm.

We are soon releasing the first public version, 1.5.0. It will be fine for 
most of the work. After the release we start building a new core. In short, 
we are writing MimerDesk from scratch to better match the needs of the 
development and future needs of education and accessibility.

Check it out if you haven't. www.mimerdesk.org.
