You mean change the name "GIMP" to something that instantly brands the app as a graphics tool? Well okay, but it's not a system change, IMHO.

Lessee, what catchy hook to rename "The Gimp" to, hrmmmm...

"RasterBlaster"? No...

"MyPrettyVectors"? Too precious.

"Paint-N-Stuff"? Not serious enough.

"Imaginarium"? Hasn't that been done already?

I give up. Only a simp messes with The Gimp!
