i kinda like "the bike shed" for a name.
App, short for application. essentially they are the same thing but by definition an application is used to perform tasks, the two terms are generally interchangeable though.
I'm pretty sure he was just angry about the apple fad of calling everything "apps" that so many people in this topic seem to be supporting. To tell you the truth, I kind of agree with him. I don't want our store to just sound like some bad iphone ripoff.
On another note, here's some suggestions from me:
prep - Stands for Pandora Repository. Kind of keeps with the idea that names should be short and simple. Also, will be easy to remember if we get a terminal command for it.
Another Castle - This is a nice Mario reference that I thought people might appreciate.
HAHAHAHA you are so funny. Steam not successful....hahahahaha thats like saying that Apple App Store isn't successful.Kagato said:mali said:"Pandora's Box"
is kind of funny and so on, but not very practical. The first time you hear it, you think oh my f* god, this is so ingenius [...]
After that it just gets annoying to explain what "Pandora's Box" is. You can't expect the consumer to spontaneously learn something. You will need to add a subtitle and the fun is gone.
Yep, and that's why Valve's "Steam" app store will never be successful.
