Renaming a tadpole to reflect its froggishness

Sun 11 Jan 2009, 08:35 AM

Given the huge increase in functionality in CoexLinks 3, I think it deserves a new name.  I'm not about to dump the CoexLinks part, as it is too well known and respected, but I was thinking of adding something to the end, the way Apple did with the iPod Touch or the way Microsoft did with Windows XP.  I hope that some of you will help with this naming.  Let's review briefly:

CoexLinks 2.x basic functionality

1) Fixes doclinks to allow them to run outside Notes, enabling proper workflow, etc.
2) Allows flexibility in whether doclink becomes Notes URL, NDL or web URL, allowing web-enabling
3) Adds a customized disclaimer to mail that is modified

CoexLinks 3.x additions

4) Improves rendering for ALL messages going out of Notes
5) Improves rendering for all rich text mail read from iNotes
6) Improves forwarding/replying rendering for iNotes 

Or, to put it even more bluntly:

CoexLinks 2.x: Improves life for customers choosing to NOT USE Notes/Domino email
CoexLinks 3.x: Also, improves life for customers choosing TO USE Notes/Domino email

Given that, one suggestion for naming has been CoexLinks Universal.  Another might be CoexLinks Fidelity.  What would you call this software tadpole that is growing into a full-fledged software frog?

Have 2 products. In the same fashion the car manufacturer do it: If you buy a Porsche Chayenne or a VW Tuareg you get the same hardware short of the logo.

As it happens, Stephan, that is just about exactly what we decided on (after I posted this and then talked with a number of Penumbra people). More announcements to follow tomorrow. Thanks for posting!
