    Windows Vista

    In reading some recent info on Windows Vista, I saw this article here that said:

    A Microsoft spokeswoman said that Microsoft did a thorough search before picking the name to ensure Windows Vista would not infringe on the trademarks of other companies or products.
    So, apparently the high priced patent lawyers forgot to go to Vista.com or check out VistA Software Alliance and WorldVistA. Granted, their thought is that it doesn't infringe on the other trademarks. Hmm...would that mean I could make and sell my own OS "Thechemgeek Windows"? Odd.

    I just can't get used to "Vista", it sounded okay as Longhorn and now it sounds gay.

    Basically they know they can keep someone in Litigation , so I doubt they really care. They can just bully someone into submission or pay them off.
