Glimpse
#1
Very few sensible people on reddit, except Ofnuts and a couple of others. There was a post about the various versions of Gimp. One is for people who think "Gimp" name is offensive.

All in the mind. This probably the original (and only) definition, from my Concise Oxford Dictionary (concise being one volume 1550 pages)

   

If you want to use other definitions, by all means, but as usual a nice old word hijacked for other uses.

My initial exposure to Gimp was through Linux,  So there seemed to be an abundance of oddly named applications: gimp, lame, sane, gnome, yum, etc

It seemed to me as though Linux must have had a  former concert promoter for the Grateful Dead doing marketing
