There were some interest in changing it: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=503070#c38 . The discussion on the bug has diverged, but I'll try to refocus it and see whether this could be the 1st spash screen saying `Eclipse IDE`.
Please follow or comment there.
If you want to change that perception in the market, then come up with a new name and spend the proper marketing dollars so that everyone gets it. Though at this point it might be easier to rename the Foundation :).+1. Unfortunately, the Eclipse IDE is currently full of good motivated developers but lacks marketing (compared to some other related products). Some of us try to keep the project/product alive on Twitter, but it's a scattered and messy effort. An @EclipseIDE account would be a way to centralize some of those efforts and to give them more visibility and impact. This requires no marketing dollar to get started on the developers' time; but at some point, it would be fair to see this account as well provisioned and maintained by the Foundation as the @EclipseIoT one.
