There are more languages than English. I'm from Spain, and I speak
Spanish and I don't have problems with the word "GIMP", and there is a
lot of people in the world that thinks the same idea. Also, the "new
name" could have problems in other languages.
These discussions about the name are almost stupid, and a lack of
time. Is better discuss about the single window interface, vector
layers, layer groups, tags in resources... Vector layers or layer
groups is something useful. A different name doesn't help to create
new images and It doesn't save time to create them.
If someone doesn't like "GIMP", He can create their own fork and
release It under his favorite name because GIMP is free software.
I think that GIMP is useful itself and It doesn't need brandings or gimmicks.
