I didn't have time to read this whole thread, so pardon me if it's already been
pointed out that the idea of changing the name of GIMP has come up more than
once in the past.

My vote:  leave it alone.  The recognition it has gained over the years is invaluable.
Go to google and type in photoshop.  GIMP is listed fifth.  You can't beat that.

Peace,
Tom

That one gets my vote, but only if the acronym can stand for
"Primary Image Manipulation Program."  After all, the title should
be as accurately descriptive as possible.

IMO the idea that GIMP is somehow "chasing after" or "trying to be"
an Adobe product is very dangerous, and it comes straight from
Adobe's marketing department.  I happen to LIKE the difference, and
by like I mean, the differences have a positive impact on my
productivity.

Does Gnome try to "be" the latest Microsoft or MAC desktop
interface?  Does VLC try to "be" Windows Media Player, or Amarok
aspire to "be" iTunes?  Do the users of these tools feel compelled
to name a commercial package that does roughly the same things every
time they mention the tool they DO use?
