I quite like openbox, but it belongs to another project.
I wouldn't worry too much about that if I was you Craig. As long as your not creating another window manager and calling it OpenBox, I really don't see a problem.
If you like it, use it :D

Personally I quite like The Vault as it sounds more secure ;)

EDIT: I also like The Fridge for some reason?
What do I do with this cool piece of software I just wrote? stick it in the fridge :lol:

I'll stick with my previous suggestion, Software Repository.

appstore sounds too iPhone, and not enough retro. The Box sounds okay I guess, but I just don't care anymore :p

How's about...

PND Pythos or more simply "THE PND JAR"
Of course you could make variations on that "The Jar", "The file Jar" etc.,since Pandora opened a Jar not a box, and you get your cookies from a jar (thought I saw some mention of goodies in another post)
even "Pandora's File Jar" or "Pandora's Jar".

These probably suck, just trying to help spur something creative, I really liked ArkHive, which is much more creative. Maybe "ArkHive Jar" lol

Edit: looking at Pandora's wiki (the woman), it says Pandora means "All-Gifted", So "Pandora's ArkHive" Would really mean "All Gifted Collection of the Community" clever! "Pandora's Jar" would also in a sense be "All-Gifted Jar" or collection. Like the possibilities in naming. I like the Idea of using Jar in the name, but ArkHive IS just too clever.

App market? Appmart? I still like appbox though it's short and sweet.

And if anyone else mentions APP = Apple I'll shoot them. I was calling Programs apps 20 years ago!

How about Persephone? It also ties into Greek mythology, like Pandora's Box and The Box. Plus, we won't have any confusion when we tell people to look in "The Box" for apps and games.

I thought they were looking for something with PND in it.

I like Arkhive, maybe just add PND to it?

The PND ArkHive
or
PNDepot
PND-Me
PND Wares (or P indie-wares)

I also like:

The Box
OpenBox or
Inside The Box

I like "The Box", I'm glad it's winning. I love a good vaginal reference in my download sites.

This, or Bike Shed, or AppHole. So many good ideas, but no way to downvote the box. <_<

@Chest Rockwell, then you should like Community Chest.
