Disambiguation page

Very interesting read!

It wouldn't be a bad idea to have a disambiguation page, dealing at least with:

  • Trojan War
  • Malware
  • general use in military and financial deception

I'll hold off doing so until you decide what suffix should be used for this article -- e.g., Trojan War, History, Mythology, etc.

Somewhere, there ought to be a small but humble place for Monty Python's Trojan Rabbit. For that matter, while it was independent research by a small group to which I belonged, there are things worth noting, such as the milliHelen being the unit of face that causes the launching of one reference Greek ship. Since a propagation velocity was not defined, the Helen propulsion system is a possible approach to faster-than-light travel.

The Golden Delicious ought to go under Apple, even though some historians think the Trojan one was an orange. --Howard C. Berkowitz 15:38, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

If there's an article about Trojan horses being malware, then I agree there should be a disambiguation page, and renaming of articles. How about if in the meantime I put a pointer at the top in case people come here by mistake wanting to know about computers.--Thomas Wright Sulcer 15:51, 7 April 2010 (UTC)
