What if we rename GIMP to "Bob FOSS Studio" and the logo is a stylish fro and goatee knockout over a painting of some happy little trees

@tcql we don't make mistakes, just happy little accidents

@tcql Yeah, but Bob Ross was easier to use ๐Ÿ˜


Real talk: if you decide to go this way, you should consult with a trademark lawyer and/or Bob Rossโ€™ estate to make sure this wonโ€™t get you into trademark trouble.

@tcql I'm not in favor of renames like that, grounded on some vague quest for political correctness everywhere. GIMP is just a name and an acronym at that. To most people, especially non-native English speakers, it has no further meaning.

That said, at least you had a funny idea for an alternate name.
