what will be the final name of Longhorn?

Recommended Posts

All jokes aside, I think the most likely name will be

Windows6

It's different enough (they stopped using version numbers after the 3 series (3.1, 3.11, 3.2)) but still in keeping with the brand name and a number which, let's face it, works.

I honestly don't give a damn what they name it as long as I'm able to get a pirated copy. :D

Let's be honest, it's what they'd do.

They'd call it "Windows6" and the 6 would be in some scripty italic font. :p

Windows6

naming most likely won't be finalized until after beta 2, so whatever the developers are tossing around now the marketing team is almost certainly going to change in the next 2 years

You guys cracked me up with all the silly names for Longhorn.

Seriously, I think the final name would be either Windows 2006 OR Windows XP II.
