The Zikula Postnuke Travesty
Last night I decided to visit the PostNuke CMS site and was a bit suprised to find I was taken to something called Zikula. And it appears that the folks at PostNuke got help in choosing a new name. From their announcement:
Today we are proud and excited to announce the results of our renaming process. As of today, our project is called the Zikula Application Framework. In partnership with Strategic Name Development, a brand consultancy firm, we worked to develop a new name which was vibrant, modern and reflected how we felt about the project
I understand rebranding a product. I can understand moving away from the *nuke image. But I have to say I hate that name. Hate it. And the logo? Like the comments on the page cited above says, it looks a lot like Joomla!'s logo.
I personally feel Zikula is hard to remember. PostNuke was easy. If any money changed hands, the folks at Postnuke Zikula should get their money back.
All in all, I think it's a bad move.
