Windows Vista?

Huh? Windows Vista is the official name for Longhorn. While I’m intimately familiar with the convoluted processes that rule naming deep in the bowels of Microsoft, I’m still surprised that they resulted in this. I think it’s vaguely ridiculous, or maybe ridiculously vague.

One thought on “Windows Vista?”

  1. I think deliberately vague is probably more closer to the truth. Vista being the Spanish word for seeing or sight, it makes me think that they may be playing on the word Windows. I mean you can see through a window. Are they expecting the market to “see through” their latest effort to milk them for licensing fees?
