Re: The name Glimpse discriminates against people who are unable to see

It's image editing software. I was already wondering how it rates on actual usability by users with difficulties versus upsetting people by having its name be a slang word for disability. And anyway, changing the name to "Glimpse" will just make computer users use "Glimpse" as slang for disability as well.
