Microsoft Code Names Successor to Vista

April 13th, 2006 by Patrick S

According to insiders, Microsoft has code-named its next version of Windows, calling it Fiji. So that’s right, Fiji is the next version after Vista, and we’re also hearing that after Fiji will be Vienna. (I thought it was blackcomb)

Of course, by the time these products reach the real world marketplace, if ever, they will probably have some other vaguely aesthetic-sounding name. But until then, we’ll call it Fiji. Our bets are on an operating system that’s not even shrink-wrapped, but web-based, certainly by the time we get to Vienna.

    So correct me if I am wrong, what would be the point in then going to Vista, if Vista R2 is going to supposedly contain features that did not make it into Vista in the first place? Would Microsoft be distributing Vista R2 or Fiji as they did with XP Pro 64 bit? A free upgrade? Any news on the projected timeline of when the R2 will be released?

    Vista R2 will most probably be something like Windows Server 2003 R2. And I don’t think there will be free update (But if it’s a servicepack, then it will be free – Service packs includes bug/security fixes and maybe a bit of enhancements to the features)
