Final Cut (Pro)

It was originally intended by its first owner Macromedia as a QuickTime movie editor named KeyGrip; in the movie industry the Key Grip is the head of lighting and rigging. Macromedia was unable to bring it to market because of licensing issues with Microsoft, so it was bought by Apple and launched in 1999 as Final Cut (“last edit”) Pro. See Wikipedia.

I look forward to your putting alternative cases.
