One of the most requested features on BB has been to provide a simple interface to browse through old questions. Finally, we figured something that we think does not suck.

Actually, we think it provides a decent interface to browse old questions.

So, please check out the new BoiledBeans Scanner and tell us how it is.

This phrase was coined by (1) to describe a kind of computer. (2) was the first computer of this kind. The famous workstation (3) was also made to target this, eventually creating a huge computer company. The super-famous (4), which lead to a certain turtlenecked dude becoming famous, was also initially designed to be a computer of this kind.

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

Apologies, folks. This question is essentially a repeat of an earlier udupendra-submitted guest question. I’m not giving anyone points for this as of now. A replacement question will be put up soon.
