Best one so far.

Well if the Workbench in AROS is called Wanderer, why not expand on that theme (avoiding calling it Explorer for obvious reasons)? Take your pick...

From that link, I suppose Venturer (or maybe Beachcomber, Wayfarer or Drifter) would be the most fitting. Rover would be good if you're looking for a second animal mascot for the system.

@HenryCase

Get this, there is a "rover" on Mars called "Sojouner".

I say let's be ironic instead of profound. If it all blows up big and famous, a self deprecatingly humorous name would rock so hard.

Nah, not my cup of tea. Having an intentionally silly name like 'Joe Pillow's First Class Flight To Teh Interweb' would be funny for like 5 minutes, I'd rather think long term. Feel free to disagree.

After reading some more of the suggestions on the developer's blog, I'm liking the space themed ones. I'll put my thinking cap back on again.

I relation to AROS's Wanderer:

* Traveller (also mentioned on th blog reactions)
* Strider (thought of this with my favourite bookgenre in mind - LotR has a Strider (Aragorn), and The Wheel of Time has a character called Jain Farstrider).
