Microsoft Windows “Vista”???

My first reaction to seeing that Microsoft has chosen “Vista” as the release name for Longhorn was to look for something more interesting to read. While it’s an improvement on XP (for eXPerience – kinda funny, actually, since it really is quite an experience) it’s all rather bland and appears to be wholly inaccurate. All that marketing clout, all those millions of dollars and Microsoft hasn’t come up with a decent name or codename for any of their releases that I know of. It’s all cattle and sell-by dates (funny that).

So, I think Erik hit the nail on the head in his QotD. My thoughts exactly. Thankfully, it doesn’t matter whether or not I like the name because I don’t have to care. 😀
