Can we stop naming products with X?

Recommended Posts

I appreciate that products want to let us customers know that their thing works with FSX, but my head is spinning:FSX, UTX, GEX, ASX, FTX, FEX...I'm sure I've missed more. And is Ultimate Traffic for FSX also UTX? Oh crud, we also have the Citation X but that one's real. Maybe I should switch to Mac OSX too :(Don

I'm too old to be a gen-Xr but I'm having Xactly the same problem. I think acronyms have reached a CROSSroad. An intersection, if you will, between abreviated clarity and numbing sameness. I'm considering calling this situation AWX for Acronyms with "x". XXXoooosBob

EXactly! EXtreme eXaserbation of X is eXtraordinarily eXhausting and taXing! X products eXude paradoXical eXamples of teXtures for any subteXt. Hopefully they will all become eXtinct when FSX eXpires or my head will eXplode from the eXploitation of the letter X. The letter X has become eXceedingly toXic and requires no further eXamination. Let's simply have no more products with an X affiXed because I wish that FSX never eXisted!Today I purchased a new Xylophone, a seXtant, a tuXedo and a new pet foX named ReX.Regards,Malcolm X.
