    I feel like "Connected Games" is very ambiguous.
    It doesn't really mean anything.
    "UNet", on the other hand, meant something.
    It was the networking in Unity.
    It was the name every tutorial and forum post used.
    It was very google friendly, since you could throw a pair of quotation marks around "unet" and very easily find results for it.

    Good luck googling "connected games".. xP
    I would love a better name for the new networking over all, and more specifically the transport layer.

    I've started working with the new transport preview package, and I just feel like I have no idea how to refer to it when talking with friends and colleagues.
    "the transport layer"
    "the new unity transport"
    "the new unity networking"
    "the Connected Games transport layer" might be the most correct one?
    But it doesn't make any sense, it sounds like gibberish compared to the short and easy to remember:
    "UNet"
