    When I hear news about GEGL and Gimp I recall Duke Nukem for some reason.

          Good.

          This is good news. Now all they need to do is change their name to something non-derogatory, and I might actually recommend it to someone!

            or you could just choose one of the non-derogatory meanings for the existing name. Try to expand your mind just a little.

                    Seriously?
                    There are two definitions for gimp that existed when they picked the name for the project.


                    1. US & Canadian offensive slang a physically disabled person, esp one who is lame
                    2. Slang a sexual fetishist who likes to be dominated and who dresses in a leather or rubber body suit with mask, zips, and chains
                    http://www.thefreedictionary.com/gimp
                    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bondage_suit



                    So yeah, that's why I think it is a bad name for a program that isn't about S&M or gimping people.
