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

Re: Divide and rule

It's a pretty big splash screen with GIMP in quite shouty letters, at least on my machine. And how long it hangs around depends on how fast your computer is, as well as how many fonts etc it tries to load at startup...

Otherwise though, yeah. Good point well made. If you actually go and look at how it's deployed (for Ubuntu anyway) this feels a bit like a storm in a teacup. The only other place that obviously mentions "GIMP" is an entry in the Help menu. Feels like a minimal-effort sort of thing to change without the need for a fork.
