Name Origin

Where did the NuGet name come from?  I'm assuming the Get part stems from similar package managers like Debian's apt-get.  Just curious.

AFAIK, it came from the Nu project, which was a community project that attempted to do the same thing as NuGet. The 'Get' part was come up by Phil Haack, so you may want to ask him directly. :)
