Could Office 12 be "Office Mondo"

The names origin does not have anything to do with the quality of the product. That will be determined when it goes into technical testing and is in the hands of the general public. If you take into consideration an acronym such as XP or NT which does not not necessarily have a specific meaning to the masses but does have a deep meaning to the company, "experiences" and "new technology", you then begin to realize the reasoning behind the name.

I never said the name's origin reflects the quality of the product. You're hearing things I did not say.

Looks like somebody didnt do their research

Looks like somebody didn't read the thread they referenced, because you can clearly see I have read that thread and responded to it.

Bricscad "Vista" is an entirely different name, in an entirely different industry, than Microsoft "Windows Vista." The name "Windows Vista" has never been trademarked (United States Patent and Trademark Office.)

If you refer back to my origional statement, you will notice, if you care to actually read, I did not once say that it was used for the name of an OS. Microsoft would have known for a fact that it cant be used then.

But the name 'Vista' has been used by a different company already as a trade mark not registerd, but is still being used by another organisation.

I was not refering to you when I talked about the industries they're in. I simply elaborated my point.

You seem to be missing the point. "Vista" and "Windows Vista" are not the same. It does not matter if Bricscad had a trademark, registered or unregistered, on the word "Vista." Microsoft is not applying for a trademark on the word "Vista." Microsoft is applying for a trademark on the phrase "Windows Vista."

Microsoft has learnt from past mistakes with Windows "XP" and Office "XP" having the same acronym attached to their name. I can't even imagine the nightmare in support with folks telling folks they are running Windows XP on Windows 2000 when its actually Word 2002 or Office XP suite thats actually running on the system. Its either Office Mondo or Office 2006

Im pretty sure that the near monopoly company Microsoft will not have any problems aquiring a trademark for "Windows Vista".

And if they did have any troubles im sure that a couple million dollars of well placed money would sort it all out... ;)

Dosn't matter if someone else already has the phrase/word 'Vista' trademarked if it's for a different product/service. It only causes a problem if the company who already have it can present a strong legal case that another company using it would cause them a problem.

Why on earth would Microsoft have a problem getting a trademark for Windows Vista anyway?
