...they don't just call it Windows. Why bother with an additional tag name? Windows is ubiquitous. If they have to tag it, then use version numbers or the year as they have done.

I still think that they are pulling the wool over our eyes and are going to include more features in "Vista" than they are leading on... But I am probably wrong.
