Submission + - Gaim threatened by AOL, changes name to Pidgin

Vorratt writes: "Under threat of legal action by AOL, the instant messaging client Gaim is now ... Pidgin. This is also why there haven't been any non-beta releases in a while, apparently, and they "hope to have the final Pidgin 2.0.0 release late this week or early next." It's good to see that open-source projects and big, mean ol' corporations can still come to (reasonably) civil agreements with each other."
