Ten Worst Software Product Names

PC Magazine has selected the 10 worst software or application product names of 2006. Some examples are:

  • Pikipimp
    pikipimp
  • eefoof
    eefoof
  • Traktor 3, Audio Kontrol, Komplete 4, Reaktor 5. . .
    reaktor 5
    This is probably a German name. Although short by German standards, it's a bit of a mouthful (no offense to my German friends and colleagues).

However, the Deutscher Sprachrat Institution considers Vergissmeinnicht (forget-me-not) one of the 10 most beautiful German words. Go figure.
