ajax and the greek myth

[ #26723 ]
It occurred to me today on the way in to work that Ajax as a name for the newest super duper solve all problem technology is kind of odd since the greek myth of Ajax (Greater Ajax) is not very good or postive. I know it is JAA (just another acronym )but will the technology end with the same fate?

Here is my synopsis of the myth:

Ajax was one of the best Greek fighers in the seige on Troy but according to some accounts (Homer) he wasn't very bright. After Achilles was killed and Troy fell, he and Odysseus both wanted Achilles armor to prove they were the greatest greek warrior. In the end, the armor was awarded to Odysseus, this drove Ajax mad with resentment. He eventually killed himself.

Is there a Odysseus project out there? ;)
