Thread: Next version of Windows named

  1. #1

    Default Next version of Windows named

    The next version of Windows, due out next year, was offically named Windows Vista today. Previously it was code named Longhorn

    Oh damn !

    I was hoping they were going to call it Windows 05 or something equally catchy.

    Seriously though, that is a **** name, absolutely crappola, lame, pathetic, wussy and watered down - hmmm, pretty much like the product is going to be.

    Hey, I've got a new catchy name !

    Heck man, they could've at least followed copying Apple to it's inevitable conclusion with their use of animal names :-

    We think we cracked the dumb reason here (yes this should have involved beer). Vista as in a view. Now you got Windows Vista = windows with a view....which is a cheap lame point to the transparent effects in it that let you see through the windows

    oh yes - transparent windows !

    Nifty idea, wonder where they got that idea from ?

    How transparent of them !



    Very very sad of microsoft - the biggest thing they can tout about their new OS is transparent windows - everything else has been thrown out and instead we listen to Hype and yet more Hype, served up with dollops of FUD about the competition.

    Well, it looks like "Windows Vista" is going to turn into a rather dismal view for microsoft, because people are not even slightly excited about it and industry analysts are already pulling it to pieces due to it's lack luster feature set.

    It's basically Windows XP2

    Oh bloodie hell. What ever. More money too spend as all the other MS products carefully require the new vista features ...

    Really lame name. Sounds like some obscure Office product.

    How stupid do those guys look in that video? "Watch the "Longhorn" naming announcement video." Not even going to waste my bandwidth on that.

    Well that will be pointless because they won't allow updates/fixes on cracked versions of Windows Vista...

    And we all know how buggy Windows is when it first arrives on the scene..
