Apparently Microsoft has gotten around to giving the next version of their OS a name. They’re going to call it, of all things, Microsoft Windows Vista.
Vista? What the hell was wrong with using the current codename of Longhorn? Longhorn sounds like a rough and tough OS that can take more than a bit of slapping around. Vista sounds like a pussy new-age OS that’ll complain a lot if you don’t treat it gently. And I thought it was weird getting used to asking folks, “Do you have XP installed?” No way in hell I’m going to ask, “Do you have Vista installed?” I’ll have to modify that question to, “Do you have Microsoft’s latest piece of crap installed?”
Found out about this via that wuss Solonor who squeals like a girl if you slap him.
