Microsoft to Announce Longhorn Name: Windows Vista

Microsoft to Announce Longhorn Name: Windows Vista: "Microsoft will announce on Friday morning that Longhorn will be officially named as Windows Vista. I first published information about this new name on my Internet Nexus blog. Activewin corroborated the story, noting that a Windows executive had mistakenly referred to the name during 'a sales conference in Atlanta.' Steven Bink (of Bink.nu) and some folks from Neowin.net also discovered that Microsoft had acquired the windowsvista.us domain name."

Great news if this is a leading indicator of a trend of dropping the practice of using the release year as part of product names...
