Default Microsoft names new operating system

Microsoft announced Friday that it will call its next-generation operating system "Windows Vista."

The much-anticipated operating system had formerly been code-named "Longhorn."

What a boring name !

I thought they'd continue with the letter combos... maybe instead of XP... Windows FU

It also ran into some legal trouble, cause some company down the road called Vista thinks they are stealing the name.
