Bug Description

We love RIP, since we do not need to bring CDs to office and stay with that damn PC in the evenings with EAC any more, and as a matter of fact it is already better than EAC. Great work and thank you so much.

However, the name of the application, RIP, is way too generic. This could affect marketing, name recognition, cross reference, and discussions in the long run. For example, currently on Google it is impossible for someone only heard about RIP to find the software. Search with "Mac only software named RIP" or anything similar would not find you and lead to your site. Also it is impossible to filter out discussions out of millions of references to term "rip".

Yes it is a big change, but I believe will benefit in the long run. The icon is great though, please keep it.
