TorBOX needed to be renamed[edit]

Quote Whonix History page.

Andrew Lewman [the Executive Director of The Tor Project at that time] told Patrick Schleizer in private mail, that it would be better if TorBOX was renamed. Even though it was announced on the website that it's unaffiliated with the Tor project, people confused TorBOX with the Tor project.

Patrick Schleizer unfortunately didn't get permission to share this mail.
