The chosen name conflicts with another open source framework for the same purpose.

Obviously this escalated (too) quickly in the comments, but I find Microsoft's handling of the issue to be particularly appalling 🙄

@fribbledom I On top of that, I may jump to conclusions too early, but: reading the comments so far, I find the kde-maui pro comments as very mature and bearing valid arguments, in contrast with the poor quality of many of the ms pro comments.


@dimitrisk @fribbledom I mean, one would think that they learned from the gvfs disaster a few months ago, but doesn't seem like that's the case…
