    My theory is that people just didn't like the name.  It didn't have enough of an edge to it.  Names with X's in them or numbers tend to do well, but others tend to turn people off.  If you look at operating systems with decent market share then you will see names like XP, OS X, Windows 98, Windows 7, etc.
