    Cool.

    I can't help but think of Arcturus StarCraft 1.

    Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTube.

        Well it's already in the article: "Arcturus is a large red star and the brightest of the constellation of Bo├Âtes. "

                  We are picking randomly within a category (bright stars) so that the name doesn't convey too much information about the product.

                  Before Polaris/Vega the internal code names were unrelated to the eventual marketing names - we're trying to get back to that for open source driver code to make pre-launch upstreaming easier.
