    Check this :
    http://www.microsoft.com/windows/default.aspx

    Seems to be nice and clean design.
    One more thing, how the naming conventions of links taken into? Check the main "What's Windows Live? Start Here. (it opens up link http://www.windowslive.com/default.html?ocid=BAN_VISTA_WL_Refresh_Hero_072008)
    So what BAN_VISTA naming convention is? I think it may be Banner but why choose such names as  BAN_VISTA....

    That is weird...
    Link is still there: http://www.windowslive.com/default.html?ocid=BAN_VISTA_WL_Refresh_Hero_072008

    Look at the tagline:
    This site is hosted for Microsoft by The Wunderman Network

    That's what happens when engineers run the world.

    I'm going to have to guess "BAN" is shorthand for "BANNER", and nobody thought about the consequences of such a naming scheme!

    Catchy name. The big reason there is no need to Vista is because you can use Live Photo Gallery instead of Vista Photo Gallery. And Live Mail Desktop is better than Vista Mail. Maybe they are hinting something.

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    It's actually part of their new naming conventions for files vendors create, including having the date on it.

    But looks odd when one sees "BAN_VISTA....." why not use "BANNER ......" or HEADER or something similar?
    These instructions should be given to Vendors developing these sites.

    New www.windows.com  or http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ looks good.

    But I am very surprised to look at the content which is still promoting .. IE6 and Outlook Express Smiley
