Lonestar Becomes Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005

by Reads (1,981)

The next version of the operating system, code named Lonestar, will officially be dubbed Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005. Beyond being a mouthfull, the name is a bit odd as the release is scheduled for late June.

It’s generally accepted to give product names the next calendar year when the release is within 3 months of the turn, so June is pretty early. Of course the Microsoft antagonists will probably argue that by the time the OS actually get released it will be October of this year anyway.
