A thread on Doomworld about the origins of various port names got me thinking. http://www.doomworld.com/vb/showthread. ... tid=129453
The J* names were, obviously, inspired by their creator's name; Jaakko Keränen (I assume I can state Skyjakes name on the forum, as it's written on the main website and elsewhere: http://www.dengine.net/engine
, for instance). As was also guessed in the above mentioned thread.
But, what was the thinking (if any
) behind the name 'Doomsday', almost 15 years ago? Just something cool sounding, that had 'Doom' in it's name?
