Windows "Hasta la Vista" will never see my box unless I have no other choice. Hopefully by then Linux gaming might be on par with Windows or online console gaming will be on par with Windows. Whichever comes first but I'm staying well clear of MS's new "Windows Millennium".

don't be alramed there is a code name a perlimanary name then a final name do you all remember.


Windows 94 = Win95
Windows 97 = Win98
Windows NT = Win NT 3.1
Terminal Services = Terminal Server
Windows NT 5.0 = Windows 2000
Windows .NET Server = Windows 2003 Server


The point is if you ***** about this being a bad name enough they will change it. Longhorn may be something a pervert would call an OS but windows vista is far worse but I have strong feelings that will change.

It makes sense, and I sure hope you are right. Vista is a nasty name. That alone will stop me form buying it
