All of these names that people have come up with are interesting, yet
all I see when I walk into RETRO is a "stack" of computer cases. Not a
pile as its organized (not haphazard) and being inanimate (not a living
creature) a herd, gaggle or other such terms seems inappropriate.
A stack also designates the circle of rifles/muskets soldiers place in a
tee pee like shape. So it seems to me, in this here computing holy war,
a Stack is the most appropriate term. ;)
