Hi all,

I find the name GIMP not very attractive and I think
if we want to market the GIMP we need to do something
about this name (i.e. change it). I have friends ask
me "What program is that?" and the when they hear
"GIMP" it doesn't sound good, and it's hard to
remember. So what do YOU think, does the GIMP need a
name change?

Thanks, --Gezim


When I arrived in Linux a mere 4 years ago and found
Gimp, I worked out what it meant and became fond
of the name in no time at all.

To my mind changing the name now would be like
renaming the Statue of Liberty to something like
statue of false hope.
