Winpdb Moves to New Home

Winpdb has moved to Now that it has a home of its own it will probably feel more comfortable to hear laud music until late hours.

I am still considering a name change to reflect the fact that Winpdb is not MS Windows Specific.

It is a shame that the Win prefix is so strongly recognized as Win32 specific prefix. After all GNU/Linux X11 is called “X Window System”. Therefore, a window is a general term that applies to GNU/Linux as well.

Winpdb is actually being developed on Ubuntu.

In the mean time, until a name change occurs, you can take Winpdb to mean any of the following:

  • Normal acronym: Windowed Python Debugger
  • Recursive acronym: Winpdb is Not Pdb
  • Semi recursive acronym: WIN = Win is Not win32
