Next version of Windows named
As my mate Tony spotted, Microsoft have announced the official name of the next version of Windows. Following Windows XP we get Windows Vista. This reflects the fact that Vista will, apparently, bring clarity to your digital world. Seems to me that perhaps someone in Marketing needs a lie down.

That's pretty funny Mr Ports! :)
If you've seen the announcement video that accompanies the... um... name change then you'll laugh even harder. It features an arena's worth of Microsofties all cheering and clapping. Rather silly.
In my mind it's obvious that MS are trying to escape the fact that Longhorn will not be all that it was originally intended to be, hence the name switch.
Ian, send me your eMail address to firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm not prepared to pay friends reunited just to reply to an eMail. Cheers.
