I would like to name my kernels. However when I remove "Local" Mathematica becomes unstable, sometimes crashes sometimes doesn't initialize correctly. enter image description here Is there something special about the name "Local"?

  • $\begingroup$ Probably because "Local" is the default for new notebooks. $\endgroup$ – Szabolcs Apr 21 '15 at 17:41

    $\begingroup$ Mathematica 10.0.2 appears to not let me remove or rename Local -- which version are you using and how did you remove Local? $\endgroup$ – Mr.Wizard Apr 21 '15 at 19:53
  • $\begingroup$ I don't know. To be honest, I don't really see the point of doing this. If it breaks Mathematica, don't do it. $\endgroup$ – Szabolcs Apr 21 '15 at 20:14
