There seems to be some debate on the topic, so I decided to start a poll. What would you name the next version of Windows if you were a Microsoft exec? I personally like the old codename, Longhorn, better than the official name. Windows Longhorn sounds perfectly fine to me... I also like Windows 2006.

Windows 2006 seems the best......

but i would name it "Windows SYS95" aka, "Windows Screwing you since 95"

:lol: That name seems to fit the most don't it? But i think the best name for it would be Windows 2006, it sounds better and has a more advanced sound than Vista does, i think Vista just sounds dumb, even Longhorn (which i don't really like either) sounds better.

Windows Phoenix (it totally doesn't deserve this, but it would sound cool) Windows 2006 Windows OP (optimal productivity)

Windows Longhorn is kinda a mouthful and not very consumer friendly... but I still maintain that its the coolest sounding. haha, Windows Phoenix does actually sound pretty cool though... so does Windows OP. It's been over the 30 minute deadline for editing my post but if your a moderator, feel free to add Windows Phoenix, Windows OP, and any others that have appeared/will appear in the thread to the poll.
