Windows Longhorn Now Windows Vista

The next version of Microsoft Windows (previously named Longhorn) has now been officially titled Windows Vista.

Whatever happened to naming software releases by number? It seems like a few years back marketing departments got a hold of software versioning and started using buzz words to describe the next version of software upgrades instead of the easier to follow version numbers.
A few that stand out in my mind:

  • Macromedia MX (and MX 2004)
  • Adobe CS (and CS2)
  • Windows ME, XP, and now Vista
