The official name of the next Windows client operation system will be Windows Vista. Here is the press release is here and the official website is here.

Microsoft has today announced the official name for the replacement to Windows XP, which was code named "Longhorn", it will be called "Windows Vista" and is due for release in the second half of 2006. The slogan for the product or marketing fluff as I like to call it is "Clear, Confident, Connected; Bringing clarity to your world". For those who cant wait until 2006 the first beta of the product should be making an appearance on the 3rd of Aug, and I am sure with loads of bugs and functionality that ...

Longhorn is now Windows Vista!

I guess Microsoft is getting closer to actually releasing the new OS. It is said that a test version will be available next month. We'll see...

Peace!!

And here is the official web page . . .
Apparently, Windows Longhorn has now been officially christened, er, marketed as “Windows Vista.” Read more here. IMO it could be worse. For me, this will take some getting used to. I have been saying and thinking Longhorn for so long, I had forgotten that was just a “code name.” BTW, someone has already pointed out that Vista means some strange things in other languages, like chicken, for example ...
Engadget is reporting that the next version of Windows (codename Longhorn) is to be called Windows Vista.UPDATE: Many other sites are reporting this as well, now. Also, as bink.nu reports, a WHOIS query on windowsvista.us is revealing. UPDATE: It’s true. Now playing: Yes - Our Song ...
Hello everybody, how're all things going on?! Look, this's got to be told that fast. Longhorns' official name is going to be “Windows Vista”. They even registered the WindowsVista.US domain name. If you just don't want to take it ahead from me, check the word from Microsoft Watch, eWeek, ReleaseReview, ActiveWin; and then, follow/join the discussions on Microsoft Newsgroups. I know no one has blogged about this yet on Longhorn Blogs. The word is spreading all over the web while I am just ...
Here's a question for you? Are Microsoft losing market share to the world of open source? Recently there has been a lot of work being done with the Linux operating systems to port it over to Mobile devices. MontaVista creators of Mobilinux and the open source linux os used by Nokia provided by Maemo.org are getting a serious hold on this market area now. An article from The Feature really does manage to sum this up well. It's funny, they have done the analysis of the market that I was part way through ...

Some days it's hard to focus, excpecally when the devistation in Sumatra this week make the Iraq war look like a picnic.  So here's a list of charities you can use to help and for those who want to know what happened here's the USGS (U.S. Geological Survey) page for this quake.

I need to start posting here again. It’s been far too long. I may be moving this to the new MSN blogspace though when it completely comes online. You can check it out now if you can read Japanese, or can suffer through a translator. I went through the process and signed up for a new blog there. The RSS feed works well, which is fortunate, because I can’t seem to read anything else on the page. UPDATE: The site is available in English now ...
Well, I have finally checked out Maxivista. My thoughts? Well, to echo Scott Hanselman, “freakin' brilliant!”. Short of having a monitor running directly off a card in your PC, this is one of the best solutions I have seen out there for multi-monitor support. What makes this most special in my opinion is that you can use your laptop monitor as another display on your primary machine. In my home office now, I am using my Tablet PC monitor as a second display on my primary development box. ...
I was just reading this excerpt from the American Institute of Physics concerning the difference in air quality during the time of the blackout of 2003. The massive Northeast blackout of a year ago not only shut off electricity for 50 million people in the US and Canada, but also shut off the pollution coming from fossil-fired turbogenerators in the Ohio Valley. In effect, the power outage was an inadvertent experiment for gauging atmospheric repose with the grid gone for the better part of the day. ...
