The Guess What I'm Talking About Game - venam - 16-11-2015

Hello fellow nixers,
In this thread we play a game where we try to guess which well known Unix tools, WM, DE, etc.. another member is talking about.

Rules:

The clues should be close enough so it's possible to guess.
There should not be any flame war in your post.
It's a well known thing, judge well what is well known.
Try to be funny.

When you find the answer use a spoiler otherwise you'll get a ban for a day. (might be a joke but don't ruin it for others)

Here we go, have fun!

I'm supported by the Linux kernel.
I went from 3 to 4.
I create that thing.
Data is scattered on what I create.

Not sure at all about this one, it's ambiguous.
telnet or netcat
EDIT: nah, netcat isn't old. It's from 2007.
