"Sierra" is how they're now remembered. I personally think it would be clearer if the Sierra and Ken Williams pages said something along the lines of "... Sierra On-line -- originally known as On-line Systems -- ..." and the publisher link remained at Sierra. However, if you want to change it, please make sure that all the links actually work, and that you change the games' entries on all relevant pages to the new form, so that the whole story remains consistent.

Sierra/On-Line Systems
