A gremlin is a mythological mischievous creature. Gremlins are depicted as mechanically oriented and extremely devious.
The concept of the gremlins as responsible for sabotaging aircraft is first recorded among airmen of Britain's Royal Air Force during World War II, in particular the men of the high altitude Photographic Reconnaissance Units (PRU) of RAF Benson, RAF Wick and RAF St Eval. The story attempted to explain the accidents which often occurred during their flights.
The NewType gremlin now are involved in software & computer related stuff, but remain extremely devious.
Gremlins are responsible of what in our days??? Sorry, is still under some kind of NDA, but soon will be released under (L)GPLv2, yes the OLD GPLv2!!!.
