Phoenix and Minotaur to be renamed Firebird and Thunderbird

Asa Dotzler writes: "After months of discussion and further months of legal investigation, we're finally comfortable moving forward with new names. The new name for the Phoenix browser is 'Firebird'. The documentation and product strings will be updated soon. In addition to securing Firebird, we've also got the OK from those contributing legal resources to use the name 'Thunderbird' for a mail client. Hopefully this will be the end of naming legal issues for a while."

Asa - are you trying to defend your incomprehensible action by throwing up a minor games project which came to life just 6 months ago? Are you going from bad to worse by arguing that two wrongs make a rignt?

Don't be trivial. Just do what you know you have to do, go into damage control mode and mend the fences you have broken. Fast, please.
