Today’s question is almost plain text only.

X is a software written by this extremely famous guy Y. Y jokes that X is named after himself, just like the other really famous piece of software he has authored. Identify X and Y.

Here is the logo of  X

Y got really frustrated with existing software which did the kind of job X does, thus he created Y. Here is a hint to the class of software we are talking about here

    Damn, for a while I thought the “Turtle” was a reference to LOGO. “Tortoise Software” googling showed it’s an SVN tortoise.
