Just a brief summary of the last two weeks, and maybe to make things
Thought my post with the topic headline "while the programmers are working
hard" clearly stated that I think the changing of name, (and or) logo and
splash screen should be made by somebody other than the developers. This
does not mean that this is the most significant problem (David Gerard), it
just means that the LMMS community could actually give something back and
make something happen (while the programmers are working (most of us can
not write any (good) code)) with this software and not just sit back and
hope that someone is going to improve this software and the style of it.
I disagree that it is a program *just* for fun (for me it mostly is).
Though LMMS indeed is simpler than professional software, you can tweak it
to make decent music. Perhaps not professional quality, but I don't know
any songs from radio or movies which is made in FL studio either...

*>Hey Red as was mentioned in another email or thread, Toby would prefer
the name to stay the same as it is a name that has become known in the
software world so to speak.*
So as far as my English and I understand. Toby does not mind changing it,
but of course he is careful not to change the name to something even

Well, LMMS is free software. You could always release your own version with your own name and logos. You wouldn't be the first to suggest names and/or logos without them being accepted. (I even did, once.) You wouldn't even be the first to ship your own rebranded version of LMMS.
But the fact that this discussion dies without resolution every time it comes up is a pretty good indicator that most users just don't care, as long as LMMS continues to grow in features and stability.
