We generally don't use names that have been (and continue to be)
used extensively by other software projects.

of the W3C on RDF, SPARQL and Linked Data publishing, particularly the emerging Linked Data
Platform (LDP) recommendation. It will also offer extensions for frequently needed additional
functionalities like Linked Data Querying, WebID, WebACL, Reasoning, and Versioning. Linda
aims to cover both, Linked Open Data, as well as Enterprise Linked Data scenarios, providing
facilities to deal with different data sources and requirements (small data/big data, open
access/restricted access, etc).
