It may not stay named as such, but for now the next version of Windows
after Vista is being called Vienna (as opposed to code name: Blackcomb).

A small snippet to explain the naming scheme:

"The code name for Windows XP was Whistler, a Canadian ski resort.
Blackcomb was also a ski resort, while Longhorn (Vista's code name) came
from the Longhorn Saloon, which was about halfway between Whistler and
Blackcomb."

Very interesting, a mon avis!
