What is LAMP?

We have been having a lot of interesting internal debates about what to call our new offering in the LAMP space -- see release: Sun Microsystems Unveils Enterprise AMP Stack.

As we all know LAMP started off as being (Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP) but if I use Ruby am I suddenly not a LAMP developer am I a LAMR developer? Or if I use Apache, MySQL and PHP on Windows, am I a WAMP developer? And what do I call it if I use Progress, or Python, or ?

Internally we often call our Solaris stack SAMP, but again it just seems strange that for each variant we have another 4 letter acronym.

So what should we have called our offering?  Basically we are supporting Apache, MySQL and PHP on Linux, Solaris and Windows.
