    "Now using Opentalk"

    It'll be called "Opentalk".

    re: Opentalk

    I hope they don't use "Opentalk" that just doesn't hit the mark like "Rendezvous" does.

    Good riddance

    Why those folks @ Apple think that using French names is fancy?
    Names linke rendezvous, expose, etc. are sickening.
    Glad to see one will be gone.
    Adieu!

    The names are justified

    Blame TIBCO.

    Good riddance: what's the 'etc.'

    Rendezvous= meeting. Networked devices (computer & printer) are "meeting" each other - on their own, I might add.

    ExposÚ= past participle of 'exposer', which means 'to expose'= show off; display. What does exposÚ do? Show you all of your windows.

    The use of these two words make sense, and are appropriate. Would you rather have Apple name the technology be called 'meet me' and 'show off', respectively?

    Don't be ignorant.

    Correction...

    Good riddance: what's the 'etc.' should read:

    J-23: what's with the 'etc.'

    Rendevous

    Didn't someone file a suit about using the name Rendevous?

    Yes, you moron. That's what this whole story is about.

    Sue?

    I think I read somewhere about someone suing Apple over the name Rendezvous. Perhaps there will be a court settlement soon...
