I have changed the page title from the registered company name APLNow to the service mark and commonly-used name APL2000, following the policies at [[wikipedia:Wikipedia:Official names|Wikipedia:Official names]]. The registered name is very obscure as it is not even used by the company itself in most publications. It is also confusing to use it because, from the user's perspective, APL2000 has remained the same entity despite the change in ownership (it seems to be the same in practice as the takeover of Dyalog by Insight but with a different legal arrangement). --[[User:Marshall|Marshall]] ([[User talk:Marshall|talk]]) 16:49, 27 May 2020 (UTC)

[[User:RLevine|RLevine]] ([[User talk:RLevine|talk]]) 00:47, 25 November 2020 (UTC)  I agree. APL2000 has been around for a long time and deserves a clear description. I added a bit about the APLDN to support the reference to APLDN on the VisualAPL page. I put in a small but positive editorial opinion about the forum which I trust is OK but am ready to submit to the "merciless editing" principle if not. It is an interesting forum though (:>)

Page title

I have changed the page title from the registered company name APLNow to the service mark and commonly-used name APL2000, following the policies at Wikipedia:Official names. The registered name is very obscure as it is not even used by the company itself in most publications. It is also confusing to use it because, from the user's perspective, APL2000 has remained the same entity despite the change in ownership (it seems to be the same in practice as the takeover of Dyalog by Insight but with a different legal arrangement). --Marshall (talk) 16:49, 27 May 2020 (UTC)
