I have worked many places where acronyms abound and this is one of the topics I’ve had fun with over my career. I’ve always liked to create alternate meanings for some of the most used acronyms and post them in a little notice on my office wall. Just for reference my experience with Fedora Linux is with Workstation. I’ve never used KDE.
Wednesday I attended the meeting for prioritizing bugs. One of the bugs was on PIM software. My Prior experience with PIM was as “Product Information Management”; so I ask the silly question “What is a PIM db used for in KDE”. Silence followed, but I didn’t follow up. Today I did a search and found the PIM is “Personnel Information Management” in KDE. Acronyms… Gotta love’em. I wonder what else PIM is used for.
Anyone have any favorite acronyms or alternate uses of acronyms?
