Microsoft Windows Vista

http://www.tomshardware.com/hardnews...22_110305.html

Microsoft's next-gen operating system shed its codename early Friday when Microsoft posted a 68-second video message on its website that had the sole purpose of introducing the name of the final product: The software will be called "Windows Vista"

[...]

Microsoft associates the terms "clear", "confident" and "connected" with the new operating system, hinting to various new features of the software - including a new graphics engine, more multimedia capabilities, improved organization of information, more security, and easier to use networking features for various devices around the house.

Re: Microsoft Windows Vista

And you'll still be waiting until the next release comes out.

By the way, this has nothing to do with the subject.

Re: Microsoft Windows Vista

The last time Microsoft used some fruity name like that (Windows ME) it was terrible. Hopefully this one is better.
