Remember that Spark tablet that is to run KDE for the interface? Well, Aaron Seigo today announced "an adjustment in our naming scheme."Without detail, Seigo said that the project "ran into a problem with trademark for the name we had chosen, and this pushed us back to the drawing board." He continued to say that this was really a blessing since that gave them a chance to look into "broader pictures around this topic." The new name of the tablet reflects a musical theme that " celebrates some of the brightest lights in human history when it comes to making, playing and living interesting lives." As a result, for the official debut the tablet will thenceforth be known as the Vivaldi.According to Wikipedia, Vivaldi "was an Italian Baroque composer, priest, and virtuoso violinist, born in Venice. Vivaldi is recognized as one of the greatest Baroque composers, and his influence during his lifetime was widespread over Europe. Vivaldi is known mainly for composing instrumental concertos, especially for the violin, as well as sacred choral works and over 40 operas. His best known work is a series of violin concertos known as The Four Seasons."
