First Vista, Then Windows Vienna

The codename for Microsoft’s OS follow-up to Windows Vista has officially changed…presenting: Windows Vienna (formerly Windows Blackcomb.) The amount of details surrounding the new OS are 100% sketchy at best but Neowin.net has a bit of info regarding the new release:

For instance, the ‘Start’ philosophy, introduced in Windows 95, may be completely replaced by a ‘new interface’ which was said in 1999 to be scheduled for Blackcomb, before being moved to the Longhorn project, and then back to Blackcomb. The interface involved some ideas based upon truely 3D Windows and an intergration of what is now known as Sidebar.”

For now, though, I’m going to concentrate on the sketchy details of Windows Vista which is still an eternity (okay, fiine, 7-8 months) away.
