    Windows Vista

    What does everyone think of Longhorn's new name? I think it's pretty sucky to be honest!

    I prefer Longhorn. I'm from Texas and I'm a Texas Longhorn fan. Vista in spanish means "View" so I guess Windows View heh, sounds kinda funny.

    Well Whistler was the code name for Windows XP, but I prefer the name XP. I prefer Longhorn to Vista, dunno why though.

    Well, a rose by any other name would smell as sweet. Conversly poo by any other name still smells like poo. I think we'll just have to wait and see.

    it might just be getting used to the sound of it, like longhorn has become common and people have got used to it.

    true scroots...

    I was 11 (wooh...4 years has passed....) when XP came out, and I didn't really like the name of it but I've gotten used to it - maybe I'll get used to Vista.

    well the name Vista has already been trade marked by another software company as far as i know, so no doubt Bill will be paying millions to them for the name or changing it. but it does sound rather g@y for a OS, vista was a cheapo Co-Op like grocery store when i was growing up!
