    Name Suggestions!

    Hi,

    I am selling a software called WinTasks 2000. It is a task manager for windows. The problem is that many beleives it only works on Windows 2000. So, I need a new name.

    Do you have a suggestion on a name? (fresh idead are needed)

    How about using a shorter title like just WinTasks (obviously you should check it's not already a trademark here) and then use a subtitle along the lines of "For Windows 9x and 2000".

    WinTasks: for Windows 9x and 2000

    It's descriptive and specifies the OS's the software can be used on. Just my thoughts

    Then people would think that it doesn't work on XP, NT, and ME.

    I like the name WinTasks though. Or TaskManager+.

    TaskIt
    WinTasks+

    Sorry, not very good at thinking of names. Try checking a thesaurus for alternative words.

    TaskMan ... you could even have a little superhero-like mascot to go with it

    Since when is a goat a super-hero? Yep, I can see a goat flying through the sky with a big cape, screaming "I'm going to save you! Baaaaah!"

    Seriously, Johan, the name WinTasks alone is fine.

    Any variation (not already taken - I'm not checking these) might also work.

    WinTasks

    I agreed with WinTasks or TaskMan.
    Just simple and describing the software well.

    Thanks for you input it has really helped.

    I think we will stay with WinTasks. I will remove 2000 and maybe replace it with a version number. Something like:
    WinTasks 4.0

    Again, thanks.
