OPL don't give me the feeling that it is something unique.
I think maybe we should consider 4 letters for the name because it is unique like the program itself.
Here are some things that already connected to the name OPL : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OPL
Who cares? You might have to write +ps2 +opl anyways.
On my HD it’s called OPL, however it’s in the PS2-folder.
Its not intended to be used for a unique name, but merely to shorten it for a filename and discussions of the project. I know im tired of writing out "Open PS2 Loader" each time i mention it, isnt OPL much easier......like ULE, SMS or HDL?

I think the discussion(?) may belong in the Open PS2 Loader -v0.6 thread, or may warrant it's own poll :yawn:
I know iso2usbld is in the source of OPL, but it doesn't even run on a PS2 - and this stickied thread is about that?
You may be right, but its really up to barf if its ok to keep the discussion of how the official OPL came to be. It 'became' part of the discussion, so nobody saw a need to move it.

So if barf wishes to seperate it from his original topic, then it will be done. :)
Ok, I've split it to it's own topic. Enjoy.
Suggestion naming convention: OPL or perhaps ODL?
We are already used to HDL and HDA, USB Extreme and USB Advanced
In order to emphasize on this projectís openness to devices/discs and the fact that itís pretty much open to any peripheral device, as well as open source.
I will hereby suggest naming it ODL short for: Open Disc Loader( only covers USB and HDD ) or Open Device Loader( also covers SMB or who knows, perhaps FW will be an option at a point in time )
I do not know how much my vote or rationalization mean to anyone, but my suggestion results: ODL - Open Device Loader
Giving the right search string on a search engine: +ps2 +odl
I vote for OPL.
Like to get this sorted out asap, as Monday is an almost day off for me, and I might finally get around to opening up that new subdomain for the "open ps2 loader", so it would be nice to get the right "shortcut" name to call it.
I too vote por OPL. It's the most voted by far. I think it's more than official.
