Default Microsoft names new software 'Windows Vista'

Microsoft Corp. said on Friday it named the next version of its operating system "Windows Vista" as it prepares to release a trial version of the flagship software that already runs on nine out of 10 personal computers worldwide.


Windows Vista, formerly known by its code-name Longhorn, is scheduled to launch in the second half of 2006, five years after Windows XP, the longest time lag between releases of its Windows operating system.

Yeah I heard about this already, and feel Longhorn was a better name, but doesn't realy matter what it's called, just so long as it's stable and reliable and more improved over XP.

Bunch of pictures here:

This picture is especially interesting:


I've seen a couple websites describing some of the most interesting new features (like the angled windows pictured above), but I don't feel like looking for them now. Do a Google!
