:gimp: For those who missed the news, #GIMP got forked big time: 

#Glimpse is the rebranded version. It will also bring changes in other areas of the program (while staying based on GIMP as it evolves of course)
I wish it didn't come to this but I'm game for switching.

#Glimpse (:gimp: #GIMP's fork) is I think a step in the right direction and a cool project.
This new name isn't yet carved in stone (until GIMP 3.0) so I recommend you all to vote on this public shared document, even if in favor of Glimpse (but please at least give it some thought and look at the other ideas too):

Feel free to ask me about the spreadsheet (I made it)

as I saw someone else suggest some months ago, I'm a big fan of 'Bob FOSS' as a name for it. ;)
is such a delicious on , that that would get my vote instead.

@FiXato I think this proposal has been officially dismissed. We're looking for something sort of "marketable" and attractive for a wider audience, so this little pun is in my opinion solving the slur issue by bringing both unclarity and silliness issues.


how is it bringing unclarity? I'd say that a name that refers to both a famous painter, and that it's a FOSS product, would have more clarity than a verb/noun such as glimpse?

Anyway, I've never really enjoyed the UI of , so I guess I'm not in the target audience anyway.
