digitalmars.D.announce - Terminix renamed to Tilix

reply Gerald <gerald.b.nunn gmail.com> writes:
Terminix, a Linux GTK3 tiling terminal emulator written in D, has 
been renamed to Tilix due to trademark infringement issues with 
the Terminix International corporation. The new URLs for Tilix 
are as follows:

Website: https://gnunn1.github.io/tilix-web
Github Repo: https://github.com/gnunn1/tilix

As always, anyone is interested in participating in the 
development of Tilix feel free to drop me a line.

I'm sure you don't want the hassle, but you might be able to fight and win that, since you are in completely different industries, there isn't much room for reasonably confusion with their trademark. oh well though, at least it redirects all the old stuff to you still.

The defence would be dilution of trademark which allows you to contest un-related infringements. However you are quire right in that I don't feel like dealing with the hassle. :)

So, is Ubuntu Budgie going to use Tilix as default? [1] That's a big news for D imo :) https://github.com/UbuntuBudgie/budgie-desktop-environment/issues/33 Andrea

That's their plan, they haven't asked me about it specifically but it's an interesting choice. I'm glad it's one of the smaller spins of Ubuntu, I don't think I could keep up with support cases if a larger one adopted Tilix as the default terminal. Thanks for the reminder about this, I posted a note letting them know about the name change.

I have tried it on Ubuntu. Works like a charm, thanks for the good work! (I have set it as my default terminal :))
