About Mooquackwooftweetmeow

Hi! This is Mooquackwooftweetmeow, a collection of stuff by Greg K Nicholson.

Man-Driver

Open Source software is usually good at changing its name – Firefox got it right (the second time) and Linspire's new name cleverly incorporates the word inspire because the OS is an inspiration to everyone.

OK, so I lied - they're generally crap at it. But how naff is Man-Driver?! I know it's supposed to be pronounced Man-dreever, but it looks like Man-Driver. That's what it says to me; Man-Driver. Say it to yourself a few times - Man-Driver.

Note that this entry does not define exactly what a Man-Driver™ is. Answers on a postcard.

About this entry

It's always a bad idea to invent words (disclaimer: this doesn't include concatenation)

I published this entry on 12 April 2005 when I should've been asleep. That means this is pretty old. Beware parachronisms.
