Re: [Gimp-developer] Gimp in private schools and educational institutions

We should call it GNUIMP (pronounced New-Imp).
"GIMP" is just crushing recursive acronyms together ;)
Seriously though, the fact that it's not commercial software is likely to
be more of an issue than the name.
"Google" is about the worst name I can think of for anything adults would
use, yet it's used everywhere, by nearly everyone so the name itself is not
going to inhibit widespread adoption. GIMP is one of the most popular Open
Source software applications available to date. People who say it's not
popular or will never be (for any reason) simply aren't paying attention.

Renames have worked in the past as I see it and for the most part, as I'm
sure you've heard people consider before, a product named gimp can't
succeed against a product named professionally like PhotoShop.

We do not make GIMP to compete against Photoshop.

And NO this product could never be implemented in
schools period.

Do you think you are likely to be listened to seriously, if you patronize

GIMP _is_ used at schools. Also, USA is not the only country in the world.
Not even the largest one out there.

Furthermore, I suggest you exercise nastyness elsewhere. This is a mailing
list for discussing development of GIMP.
