    I suspected they renamed it ForceWare to go along with the name GeForce. Although I liked the name Detonator better.

    If you think the name sounds like it's going to blow up, you should have heard the cooling fans on the original 5900s.

    Too me, its all too fitting after the ut2003 performance hack.

    Not to mention it sounds a bit too much like 'spyware'

    That's why on my computers with nVidia cards I still use Version 53.03.
