I was just thinking about Nero’s name and what it initially started off as (burning cd’s) and it made me wonder what the folks at Ahead software were thinking when they came up with Nero as the name of the software. Historically, Emperor Nero was known for burning Christians (sometimes to keep his garden lit at night). Nero was also accused of setting fire to Rome in 64 AD (hence maybe the logo for Nero with the burning Colesium). One can only hope that if Nero was named after Emperor Nero, that the reference to the latter event rather than the former. It would be sad to see any product named after someone who is historically known to torture others for amusement and persecution (imagine a product named after Hitler). Anyone have any ideas to the origin of the name to this program?
Just a thought. Not trying to raise anyone’s dander.
