Does the word have any meaning? Why did the development team choose to go with this name?
"Glasshopper, why look beyond the beyond ? Sit,breath and enjoy"
Oh, sorry, I somehow missed the topic.
It would be easy to miss with the amount of topics created in such a small space. Don't feel bad... I think the forum is a little overwhelmed as well
Anyway, is Xen a native English word? I can't get a clear meaning for it, Can anyone help with that?
Thanks DSF, So is that the Xen which they mean (virtual-machine monitor)? or they mean something else? I just can't get the full meaning in XenForo that XF team intended to have it in the name of this forum.
No, it's a variant of the prefix 'xeno' which is derived from the Greek word 'xenos'.
And what does the prefix 'xeno' or 'xenos' mean?
Does it mean: foreign, stranger as it stated HERE?
If so, then the meaning of XenForo is something like: "Unique Forum", "Out Standing Forum" Or "Alien Forum ", right?
well, then another appropriate term could have been.....
Which means ... ?!
Alien Forum it is
I sort of assumed "xen" was a stylized/invented variant of "zen". But I really have nothing to base that on.
Separate names with a comma.
