Another rant on cutesy

Codenames for releases are ok.

But the countless cutesy names for *nix tools get tiring … (And don’t help their adoption). 

From an email from debian security list today:

“Several vulnerabilities have been found in the Iceape internet suite, an
unbranded version of Seamonkey:”

Imagine if these tools were used in a corporate environment “I removed Iceape and just went with Seamonkey”.

EOF.
