During the search for alternative sources of information for U + +,
I stumbled on this page here:
http://packages.ubuntu.com/en/hardy/devel/u++

No comments, just an unpleasant fact.

Hello Sergey

Both are very unpleasant.

It is curious that in the second case they say:

Quote:

It was decided ... to change the name of the UNL Consortium into U++ Consortium in order to avoid name or brand conflicts with other institutions that already use this acronym


I think that it is impossible to have an acronym so unique that no company or organization in the world uses it. I know cases of it for very big companies with thousands of workers.

For example, there are two companies with Gamesa name:

- Wind Mill manufacturer, staff 7200, http://www.gamesacorp.com/en
- Cookies manufacturer, http://www.gamesa.com

Best regards
Koldo
