So, is it time for a name change for the project.

I've never been overly keen on the name MistyPE - it was used out of laziness and a lack of any other suggestions (see here for the background).

I was thinking of perhaps Mini-WinPE - tying my two (very closely linked) projects together.

The next full release would be a good time to do this.

Thoughts and suggestions welcome.

Misty

P.s. It's such a bloody shame that erwan.l beat me to the name QuickPE!

Just a note for MistyPE. Googling it gets you MisType not the PE project.

"ErwanPE" would have been very ugly and ackward hence I had to come with something different. (edit : I am talking about QuickPE there).

 

On the other side, I think that MistyPE really sounds cool.

Mini-WinPE sounds good as well.

 

I was also thinking of TinyPE (similar to TinyPXE) as well for some projects of mine around WinPE....

erwan.l, :realmad: let your fingers away from Misty's Project, not "i want have this name" or something else..
it sounds nothing more cool as MistyPE, damn ! :angry:  it is not your project, it's Misty's Project .
so, don't nerve.. if... you have an own Project and an other helps, want you dont like to let it overtaken with an other name,
so do it not by others too.. let you fingers/meant of the other name, away... or i take a highpressurepress for your fingers or your brain..

I believe you misread me and what you are writing does not make much sense to me.

When I mentionned "ErwanPE" it was some sort of humor referring to QuickPE, definitely not to MistyPE.

How can one possibly imagine I would want to rename Misty's work with my own name? That would be stupid & arrogant.

 

I dont understand your hasty and rather cloumsy reaction ?

I want to believe this is a misunderstanding.

 

As I have a huge respect for Misty's work, I recommend we stop this discussion right here to avoid spamming his thread.

I also will put this down to a misunderstanding. I have a tremendous amount of respect for erwan and his post (#6) bought a smile on my face - a response he no doubt anticipated.

To get back to topic, when (if) you will have a new project, then a new name will be needed, there is no need to change name to the present project (MistyPE), unless of course you want to indulge in the same senseless renaming that seemingly periodically crosses the mind of developers, and which ONLY result is to make a few old dinosaurs mad and confuse all the younger kids, without any practical advantage for anyone.

 

BTW, you would be self-undermining your brand image ...

OK, the consensus seems to be not to change the name. As this also avoids additional work for me then I'm happy to go with the majority. BTW, is the one of the old dinosaurs you refer to also the forums resident grumpy old b@5t@rd? Assuming this to be the case I will definitely avoid the wrath of :jaclaz:

I didn't realise I had a brand image!

Well, I won't lie to you, "Misty" is not as strong a brand (yet) as Walky:

or Plany :

http://tiffzhang.com...?s=321841372875

( to name a couple of promising startups :whistling: ), and of course you would need to make a few youtube videos and pro-actively increase your SEO to get a better Alexa ranking, but you are already on a good path.

I think name is good-known and well preserved. Also people tend to remember what they have "tested-to-be-working", so, usually keeping name is very important.
