Windows Collaboration name announced

May 25th, 2006 by Zack Whittaker

Although in the Beta 2 release of Windows Vista, Windows Collaboration is still codenamed as Collaboration. However, after reading the Windows Vista Product Guide which apparently was pulled from the servers (for some reason or another), I do believe it’ll be called, Windows Meeting Space. That’s right, the new name for Windows Collaboration.

On page 196 (or thereabouts), it clearly states:

Windows Meeting Space, the new collaboration feature in Microsoft Windows Vista, is a simple yet powerful tool that enables face-to-face collaboration among small groups of Windows Vista users— anytime and anywhere.

Whether you are making a Microsoft Office PowerPoint presentation or revising a spreadsheet, Windows Meeting Space enables face-to-face collaboration by as few as two or as many as 10 people over a wired network, an ad hoc wireless network, or a wireless local area network (WLAN) access point.

And connections are established quickly, easily, and securely. One person simply initiates a session in Windows Meeting Space and then allows designated users to share the same view of an application and to collaborate in real time.

Although the article was pulled, Bink still has the article flying around. Check it out here.

Update: Now available publically – check out the official link here 🙂

    Not to knock this article, which is really cool BTW, but Meeting Space has been out in the open since August: http://www.longhornblogs.com/bleblanc/archive/2005/08/08/14428.aspx. And several folks have been talking about it for the past three weeks after the Beta 2 Labs we attended earlier this month.

    So no need to flip through the Product Guide – just read blogs! 🙂
