Longhorn Name Dropping

Here's a shocker: It seems that "Longhorn," cool as it sounds, will not be the name of the next Windows Server.

Brace yourselves! Longhorn will be called "Windows Server 2008."

Microsoft won't comment on the name, mistakenly posted on its Web site, but this is far from a surprise.

I think they are substituting a great name, Longhorn, for one as boring as an Al Gore press conference. What do you think? Let us know at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
