§ Good name... BAD name.

Wii.

...

...

Right.

Sounds similar to and about as good of a name as Intel's "Viiv." It seems that X is out and ii is in. Maybe I should call my program ViiDub.

What's with the names lately? The cool-sounding Windows Longhorn became the lame Windows Vista, and although I usually dislike Macintoshes with a passion, I thought that PowerBook was a pretty good brand name, as opposed to the bland MacBook Pro.

It might ruin your life, but me and my friends are using terms V(ii)Dub (Vii is same as WE when you say it aloud) and V(ii)DubMod.
Also iTunes is just "tuuns" and so on...

I thought it was very funny when Apple (the user friendly company) presented an OS name which needed pronounciation instructions (say 10... it's a Roman number). It became even more funny when they made an update: OS X 10.1 (Uhh.. is that OS 10 10.1?). BTW, several US citizens had problems reading my birth date in my passport, because the month was written with Roman numbers (IX).

When you consider "Windows Vista" sounds like "Window Svista", you may (or may not) like to know that in Italian "svista" means something like "overlook", "lapse", "slip-up", "euphemism for total and catastrophic mistake".

Spurred by that thought, I've started my own fun little list of software running on Svista:
Microsoft Soffice ("soffice" means "soft", btw), including Sword, Sexcel, Saccess, Sowerpoint and Southlook
Microsoft Sackup
Remote Desksop
Swordpad
Notesad
ShyperTerminal
Adobe Shot-o-shop
Adobe SinDesign
Adobe/Macromedia Slash
SinAmp
Internet Sexplorer
Sopera
Sirefox
Newtek's Sightwave
SultraVNC
SSPlayer
SowerDVD
Sad-Aware
Sysinternals FileSon
Sysinternals RegSon
Sysinternals SootkitRevealer
VirtualSub

Sorry, not "overlook"... "oversight".
My svista.

Svista?... can't help think about a Svastica hearing that...

And about other windows names... '95 was kind of right... but it was widely available in '96... '98 was kind of lame... but 2k and Millenium sounded pretty nice.

Then we got XP, the coolest sounding and coolest looking Windows -ever- and 2003 -another lame name- wasn't mainstream. But really, Vista is the lamest of the names they could give it.
