Longhorn was a better name they should have stuck with it, vista it sound so, well its not quite, it should have a good manly name like windows 2006 or 33.1 something good like that not steal a rubbishy name.

Treat Windows Vista As A Massive Security Patch
Microsoft's latest operating system, Vista offers a unique security value as it boasts the ability to better address a variety of exposures that existed in previous systems. But in providing the insight on security enhancements Microsoft is also providing hackers with a template to attack earlier OS versions.
To insure compatibility, Microsoft has to document and share the changes they have made with products and, unlike a patch; the changes in Vista are significant and comprehensive. Virus writers, however, can take that same documentation defining the patch fixes and use it to write viruses that exploit the exposures in unpatched systems.
The security changes made in Vista range from a large number that are known--such as creating a secure repository to eliminating the need for a user to work in administrator mode--to some not well known, like the aggressive move to a 64-bit base that should make it difficult, if not impossible, for entire classes of viruses to install and run.
Microsoft may get sued over new Longhorn name
A VOLISH plan to name its forthcoming operating system Longhorn 'Vista' has been attacked by an outfit of the same name, which is planning to sue.
According to The Seattle Times, here, a business software and services company named Vista, founded in 1999 and located in Redmond, was not amused by Microsoft's choice of name
Founder John Wall of www.vista.com, who lives just around the corner from the VoleHill, said he was very miffed and has released his briefs to have a quiet word with Microsoft.
Vole hopes that it has got around a legal firefight by trademarking the words "Microsoft Vista" rather than just the word Vista. µ
in_texas_dallas : My opinion is that windows XP is stable enough. The only issue that comes to mind is 64-bit. Somebody told me that 64-bit version of XP has problems with drivers. dunno..
