What’s in a name ?

If you needed Windows, and you went to the store, and saw two versions lying there called Windows XP Professional Edition and Windows XP Professional Edition N, which would you buy ?

Before you start scratching off too much skin from your head, the name with the added N is the European Commission’s name for the upcoming Windows XP version without the oh so dreaded monopoly smelling Media Player. Microsoft’s own suggestion, Windows XP Reduced Media Edition, which is much clearer, was rejected by the commision.

Then again, WHAT ARE WE TALKING ABOUT ? The versions will be priced the same, as the commission’s ruling did not include anything about that, so do you think the stores will even supply this nonsense ?

    Smart move of Microsoft to give them the same price (the only thing we need now is smart software…).
