Next Version of Windows

Next Version of Windows

Yep, that’s what the next version of Windows is going to be called:

Longhorn is now Vista Windows Vista

Clear. Confident. Connected.


It reminds me of old post cards and cheesy sights-to-see between Niagara Falls and Tonawanda, which just a touch of “if we say these words enough times in conjunction with Windows, people might believe it”. Beta 1 will be out on August 3rd, 2005. Do you know the way to Shell Beach?

    I miss the old days when they just numbered the software. The day they announced it would be Windows 95 instead of 4.0, a little part of me died inside.

    Yeah, it makes you want to switch to Mac OS, just to have the satisfaction of having regular, predictable version updates :-) They sort of have the best of both worlds: each release has a codename AND a version number.
