Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Everything Everywhere is looking for a new name, and El Reg readers haven't been backwards in coming forwards with suggestions so we present a poll from which you can pick the best.

A simple "Four" was a popular suggestion, presumably rendered in an mystifying swoosh, while The Indomitable Gall came up with the eloquent "Cartel Communications", and Greg J Preece went for the delightfully childish "We Have All The 4G, Ner Ner Ner" which makes the point even if it would look slightly odd on the business cards.

Taking quality of service into account were suggestions including "Heisenberg Mobile" and "Omnishambles", from Wayland Sothcott 1 and Gazareth respectively, but the most popular suggestion along those lines (and the one most submitted by staff from competing operators) was Something Sometimes, so it's with that we'll start our poll of the best:
