Thread: Why is called Kazaa?

  1. #1
    Kazaa was my first p2p program but just as everyone else I stoped using it and switched to bittorrent a few years ago. But I have never really understod why the program is called 'kazaa'. Does anyone know?

    The word means "Let's go" in Korean and "Goat" in Russian

    Thanks. They prbably ment 'let's go' when they created it. Using 'Goat' seems a little weird

    I learn something new everyday. Going to refer to it as the goat from now on.

    They would have called it Sheep...but there was not one to be found during the annual Welsh bachelor feast of Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.

    After much discussion, using the famous Dutch Polder Model to make the decision, Kazaa as alternative to "Sheep"was eventually chosen; knowing that most Kazaa users were capable of writing maximum 4 letter words(WTF being by far their favorite), and also, one of the developers did actually mention that Kazaa has 5 letters in it.... But he was out vogoated

    And using 'mule' is better?

    Those people who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do.
