The new Windows operating system will be called Windows Vista. Formerly known under the code-name, Longhorn, Microsoft's flag ship software will be
released during the second half of 2006. It promises better security, graphics and computing over the internet. The name 'vista' was chosen for
"communicating the idea of clarity." according to Brad Goldberg, general manager of Windows product development at Microsoft.
SEATTLE (Reuters) - Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq:MSFT - news) 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.

To me Windows XP isnt broken, so why fix it? But if increased security comes from Vista then why not
The better graphics addition seems more of a
gimmick than any real addition to me.
5 years between XP and Vista, things are slowing down with Windows.
