Ahh.The one time I don't read it and I miss something. Well, apart from the link not working properly, it says "pleasing view." :p.

TomasF, the comments "It is better to be silent and thought a fool than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt."

Ah shit that's me all over, the second one. More edits.. safer to spam one post than a whole bunch

in Latvian "Vista" means "Chicken"

:lol:

That's one hell of an ugly sounding name. I mean... 'Vista'? What, did they steal that from Alta Vista? I think something like 'Windows Tron' or 'Windows 2006' would be better. I think they've stopped doing yearly names though because it makes the OS look like it's old the year after.

Well the did Server 2003 / Mobile 2003. Windows 2006 would be nice.

Windows Tron is the worst name yet. It isnt a convertable action figure...

In spanish, 'Vista' means 'A view in the distance' or 'Later' Could this mean that they're prolonging it even further?
