RE: Windows Vista
Indeed... Windows View/Vista? :S

Longhorn sounded... I dunno, kind of futuristic and cooler. Windows Vista sounds old...

I like Vista, actually... as mentioned all over the web, remember how you reacted to "XP" the first time you heard it?

Could be better, could be worse. It's a name after all, and we'll forget about it once we get used to name it like that.

Hm.. im still a little iffy on the name, not so sure whether I like it... I'll keep saying it in my head... Windows Vista...Windows Vista...Windows Vista...

And then the decision Vista or Longhorn, Longhorn or Vista... maybe they'll rethink it depending on what people think

Or maybe not :P  I don't see them naming it Longhorn, despite all the hype the name has.

1st, don't forget Vista has a meaning in LOTS of languages. Longhorn only means something in English, and it's already pretty ridiculous to compare an OS with a horn :P

2nd, by keeping the name they'll keep all the psychological bad image. Vista sounds new, Longhorn sounds like the same thing that has been slowly moving over the last 3 years.

Sorry but I guess the letters "Vista" mean nothing in Chinese :p


Well, I prefer Windows X2 or Windows X6 considering its version number. Anyway, Vista just sounds that... well, a little bit, Microsoft has done nothing in it so that we need "more vista".
