FireDaemon? Here’s the story of our name.
A “daemon” is, in computer parlance, a computer program or application that runs as a background process rather that under the direct control of a logged in interactive user. As such, modern operating systems such a Linux, Microsoft Windows and Apple’s macOS generally start or launch a variety of daemons a boot time. The term “demon” was applied by Lord Kelvin in 1874 when describing the concept behind Maxwell’s Thought Experiment to further the understanding of the second law of thermodynamics. The demon was an imaginary mediating being responsible for guarding a trapdoor between two containers of molecules. The first version of FireDaemon was written in San Jose, California in 1999 to allow a spatial software product called Formida Fire (RIP Andy P) to run as a Windows NT4 service. Hence, FireDaemon was born!
