    [news=http://img335.imageshack.us/img335/6251/msvistanew3bh.gif]Bob Stein has just posted that the next version Windows, currently codenamed 'Longhorn', will in fact be named Windows Vista.

    Update: Microsoft has just posted their 6AM PST Press Release confirming that Windows: Codename Longhorn will be called Windows Vista. Microsoft has also launched their official "Windows Vista" web page. Announced on the page: "Beta 1, targeted at developers and IT professionals, will be available by August 3rd 2005".

    So, how is Seattle this time of year, then, IKE?


    One has to wonder what was wrong about just calling it Longhorn, 'cos I can't say that Vista is much of an improvement.

    Longhorn is a great name, Vista is an awful one.
    Blackcomb was also a really good name, but they dropped that as well.
