M (sarcastically): That is a great idea! How long before you think Google takes GIMP and ajaxifies it and releases it? Look it’ll have Photoshop import/export!

J: What a bad idea.

Me: That’s awesome! And when it gets really popular they can release a “desktop version.”

M: Yeah, they can call it “GIMP.”
