Daughter named after Vista

Unread postby ndmmxiaomayi » June 23rd, 2007, 11:06 am

I don't think anybody has ever taken Microsoft brand loyalty quite so far as this: MVP Bil Simser has named his daughter after Windows Vista. If that wasn't enough, Vista's middle name, Avalon, is the codename for Windows Presentation Foundation. You can see her, complete with subversive iPod branding, on his site.

Full story

Part of the blog:

Her name came as a discussion about what her name should be, as they always do. At first we didn't know what sex the baby was going to be so we started with a boys name. We rummaged around the Internet, baby name books, and our brains finally to arrive at Dev. Yeah, geek origins but it had meaning to us. Dev (as in short for Developer) sounded like a good boys name; had it's origins in Sanskrit, it was unique and interesting and we liked the sound of it. Then came the process of finding a good middle name and again after some time, we liked Orion (as in the constellation).

We stared at the piece of paper with his name written out:



There it was, plain as day. Our son's initials would be DOS. We laughed and laughed and then came the afterthought. Well, if our son's initials are DOS, a daughter would have be an upgrade. And thus the name Vista was born.

This is hilarious. :lol:

Wow... think my Wife would cuff me upside the head if I wanted to name one of our forthcoming twins after an OS.

*runs off to test that theory*

Edit: Well... I didn't get cuffed... but I did get a pillow thrown at my melon :P
