GIMP open source image editor forked to fix 'problematic' name

Huh

I guess I never made that connection. I've called people a gimp, don't get me wrong, but I've never linked Gimp and gimp. Weird how that works.

And I'm not saying that in a sarky way. I'm actually OK with all of this. Like we stopped using spacker, and other insults to people's physical well being. If all I have to do to stop a person feeling insulted, is change 1 word, it feels like literally the least effort I could make.

Glimpse makes it sound like a Chinese knock off though
