Microsoft Codenames: Here’s a list of Microsoft software project codenames. EVeryone knows about “Longhorn,” there days. And a lot of people know that Windows XP was called “Whistler.” Goign further back, a handful know that Windows 95 was code-named “Chicago.” But “Impala”? “Starfighter”? “Airstream”?
As anyone who had worked with me in the past will attest to, I’m mildly neurotic about naming my programming projects.
