Windows watchers eye their new Vista

Those who follow the ins and outs from Redmond have been chewing on the Windows Vista name for awhile. Though some preferred its predecessor code name, Longhorn, others see merit in the official moniker.

Steven Bink over at Bink.nu suggests the use of the WinVi nickname, noting "vi" is the Roman numeral for 6 and saying that Longhorn is really Windows NT 6.0 anyway.

As of midday Friday, an informal News.com poll showed a rough split between "I'll get used to it" and "Rubs me the wrong way". Less than 15 percent described the new name as "Perfect."

I wonder how the folks over at Vista Windows feel about Microsoft's choice.
