    So I'm driving down to work tonight, heading down to the valley and i gotta say, holy crap, fourth night now and the views are frickin awesome. I never knew there were so many Company Headquarters down in the valley of Spokane, it's weird cause i've been here for 7 years now.

    Anyway, i'm driving the speed limit (HAHA, right.. kidding) and surprisingly there is a road named "Vista" and another "Avalon" just a few blocks down from each other.

    So, where did Microsoft get the code names for their software?

    The codenames for XP, Vista and "Blackcomb" was named by a sci sport area, that the microsoft guys uses.

    Weird. Didn't they say they got the codenames from somewhere else though?
