    guys, before downvoting or voting to close, please provide an authoritative reference that clearly states what's the official acronym definition if there's one. The links provided by John and @eyoung100 don't answer the question. (one may argue that the question has little to do with Unix or Linux though). – Stéphane Chazelas Nov 24 '14 at 16:18
