Re: [OT] Turtle

From: Mark Phippard <markp_at_softlanding.com>

Just to play a bit of a devil's advocate here, why is it OK for two open
source projects to be called TortoiseCVS and TortoiseSVN, but not for
another open source project to be called Turtle? This is not a product
from Microsoft, it is an open source product that is doing something like
the TortoiseXXX products, but for Microsoft's Team Foundation Server.
Would it be better if they called it TortoiseTF or TortoiseTFS?

Just curious what the issue is. It seems like calling it Turtle will
create less confusion. Also, given that Microsoft provides a GUI client
with TFS, I am not sure how popular this product will or will not be
anyway. I am not exactly sure when it would be used. Maybe for people
that want to manage stuff that does not use Visual Studio as IDE?

Thanks

Mark
