I’m not alone in thinking that “Windows Vista” is a really bad name. Apart from the obvious ‘Hasta la Vista’ catch phrase which brings images of the Governor of California single-handedly shooting up Redmond.
I did a search for other “Vista’s” on Google. Here’s what I found:
Vista.com – Helping small business do more business.
Vistaprint – Full service graphic design and printing.
