    right..i remember that meme about the origin of longhorn. wasn't whistler supposed to be the code name of XP and blackcomb the name of the next full win os. so longhorn was chosen as transition since its between the two?

    I suspect you probably meant to say that his role can't be overstated.  Otherwise you're belittling his contribution, no?  Smiley

    1) Whistler was what became xp & ws03.  Blackcomb was the next - it became huge, the idea was we do a little release in the middle, longhorn.  not so little...
    2) frank is the king.  the picture is a surprisingly good likeness.
    3) i never get no respect, so i am used to the intentional slight from scooby. <inserts lame smiley emoticon here>
