Sawfish was once called Sawmill. Unfortunately, "Sawmill" was trademarked by another company and the original project name has to be changed. Sawfish was chosen for three reasons,
- There are no other computer-related uses of the name (as checked in April 2000).
- It's similar enough to the old name to hopefully carry some recognition across.
- It has no tenuous relationship to window-managing.
About the wiki, the first version was located on http://sawfish.uberstyle.net and maintained by Kevin Kane. After numerous vandals attacks, the wiki was disbanded. Clemens Fruhwirth stepped in, created http://sawfish.endorphin.org, imported the old contents, kindly supplied by Kevin,, and started organizing the 3rd party extensions.
A very early discussion on this Wiki itself is found here.
This lasted until today when, with a community effort, was decided to move it to http://sawfish.wikia.com as Clemens asked for a new wiki maintainer.
