Addition time: 22:52 ICT WEDnesday, 23/03/2011

NukeViet is pronounced [ Nu-ke-Việt ] in the way of  Vietnamese pronunciation, not English pronunciation.

What does " NukeViet" mean?

NukeViet is the combination of two words,  Nuke and  Việt. Two old versions, NukeViet 1.0 and NukeViet 2.0 were developed based on PHP- Nuke open source.The name " NukeViet " has been called because of this reason.

Although the new version, NukeViet 3.0 is the brand-new version created differently and there were a great many ideas being put forward to change its name in the development process, the name " NukeViet" is not changed any more. The reasion is that programmers want to thank Franscisco Burzi - the creator of PHP-Nuke for his contribution. IT community has a chance to enter open source world because of him.

Nuke is a slang, it means " nuclear weapons" ( see http://vi.wiktionary.org/wiki/nuke). The development  team of  NukeViet hopes that Nuke will be successful as much as its name meaning.
