Manjaro WebDad Community Edition


I have not worked in this for a long time, we will see how 2019 will be.


Hope you’d be continuing with your Jade desktop. It is distro agnostic, and can work quite alone with only a WM, such as Kwin or Openbox. I have tried your Jade in many distros. And, it works!

I’d also like to say that, it would be nice to change your distro’s name from WebDad to Jade (your wife’s). Jade is an easy to remember, nice name.


Agreed! No offense, but webdad sounds like something that’ll spew quite amount of dad jokes.

Unfortunately it can not be called Jade officially as there is a few software out there with that name.

webdad(web developers and designers or web development and design) might not be a great name, but it does is propose and stays in your head even if is because is a bad one.

I will be continuing with Jade development, but i dont have a release date.


Love the look. Will install in a moment (after trying out Manjaro open box)


I agree, It sounds kinda like from a porn site. If Jade is not an option, a different name must be found. Maybe a simple WDD? If KDE could work for so many years, WDD should do it.
@codesardine, just take your time considering and finding the new name. It's a really important thing and I believe in many cases the name alone has a power to promote the project. Manjaro, Fedora, Neon, Arch - those are lovely names. Makulu... not really, so it stays on the edge of the Linux world. Sure, you can promote the bad name as Ubuntu if you have some marketing power, but a good name helps. WebDad just sounds wrong. The project may be mature enough to give it a serious name.


If only a name made something or someone amazing i would change my own. :smiley:, The most important thing about a name is if it means something, like debian ( Debbie + Ian ).


WDD means what you said above->web developers and designers or web development and design


My naming skills may not be the best, but WDD sounds like the pro version of WD 40 anti rust spray. :blush:


Nah, 3 letters make the difference :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: . Maybe someone will propose better name or maybe you will find something. Nobody is rushing you.
I'm surprised that nobody mentioned the bad name on the very beginning. I did think it thou but didn't think it mattered at that time.

Hm... Make something on with wdd (as full words) and jade? There are sites out there where you input the words and associations and it returns different forms and variations. Finding a name is a big deal for companies, products, etc. so no wonder there are articles and help sites about it.

If nothing comes spontaneously, there are already processes that can help you with it.

P.S. It's good to know that WD 40 is international thing ;D . What would we do without it?
