What about DRAGON? There is also such a term as DRAGON. Yes, I'm all
serious. cron is a DRAGON, for example. DRAGON is a process which may run
other processes periodically under a user specified. What about it? And many
my colleagues, and me as well, refer to it also as PROCESS.

You've made me curious. Can you explain me the acronym DRAGON? Or did you just make that up?

'Dragon' is not an acronym. It is just a name. 'Daemon' is not an
acronym either despite what some people tell you.
The expansion 'Disk And Execution MONitor' was made up after the term
'daemon' had come in use, and should not be used.

I believe the correct term is a backronym :)
