We were in Nashville for SUGI 23 when SAS announced plans for versions 7, 8
and 9. The 3 versions were collectively called 'Nashville Project'.

Ver. 7 was referred to as the Nashville Project. Although this really does
not get you much closer to a real logical answer of "Why NASHVILLE?". I
have wondered myself "Why NASHVILLE?". Why not call it ATOMIC and then you
could have people wondering what ATOMIC stood for and it could mean nothing.
Just like S-A-S means nothing. Yes, I know it used to be an acronym for
Statistical Analysis Solution but no longer is that true.
See link for description of the Nashville Project.

When I start up SAS ver 8.0 (Windows NT), the postcard that comes up
says "Nashville Enabled". Does anyone know what this means? This is a
trivial question, but I am curious. When I see or hear the word
Nashville I think of Johnny Cash.
