Hello, my name is Vaadin

For a long time we have had doubts about the name "IT Mill Toolkit". It just have not sounded as easy to communicate and cool as we would have liked. Most of the people we have asked advised us to just change the name. Finally, we have found a new name!

The new name for IT Mill Toolkit will be Vaadin.

(click the name above to see Vaadin logo!)

The name has been selected to be short, simple to write and easy to pronounce. It should be unique enough to be easily found with Google and give us a good basis to build on. The word originates from a Finnish word "vaadin" that means (female) reindeer. In Finnish, "vaadin" also means "I demand". So you could say "Vaadin parempia käyttöliittymiä!" - "I demand better user interfaces!"

The new name will be used for 6.0 version to be released by JavaOne 2009.
