GNU Interactive Tools

GNU Interactive Tools (GNUIT) is a set of interactive tools. It contains an extensible file system browser, an ASCII/hex file viewer, a process viewer/killer, and some other related utilities and shell scripts. It can be used to increase the speed and efficiency of most of the daily tasks such as copying and moving files and directories, invoking editors, compressing and uncompressing files, creating and expanding archives, compiling programs, sending mail, etc. It looks nice, has colors (if the standard ANSI color sequences are supported), and is user-friendly.

        Hasn't anyone noticed that Linus Torvalds' new kernel code repository project is trying to steal the name of this project?

        I've used git numerous times, and prefer to keep it available wherever I go. What's going to happen if somebody steals the name?
