Graphics, User Interfaces How would I describe today's GUIs? A mess. -- A mess that grew as new features were needed, with lack of proper design, with a desire to keep backward compatibility, and with tools from the past trying to achieve future needs. I propose a new design philosophy for GUIs. We'll call it Vermaden's GUI. Note: This is the latest entry in our 2008 article contest.

Actually, I dont believe the story of Freax being renamed Linux by someone else.

Imagine you did a project and called it KazooBang. And then I am to host it, and I rename it to LattjoLajban. What would you think then? Would you accept someone renaming YOUR project? Hell no. Linus is the owner, and Linus approves any name changer. We all know how arrogant the Linux kernel developers can be. There is no chance in hell that Linus allowed someone else to rename his project, without Linus approval.
