Speaking of Windows Server 2008, its server virtualization component finally
has a name: Hyper-V, which sounds like the name of a character that would've
appeared in the noted 1984 break-dancing drama Breakin'.
We liked Longhorn as a name for Windows Server 2008, but we love the name Hyper-V.
We sincerely hope that Steve Ballmer or some other Microsoft executive eschews
the standard-issue, blue button-down shirt and trots out to Grandmaster Flash
this at February's server launch event.
Oh, and there's more server news. From early-'80s hip-hop to alphabet soup,
we have next SQL
Server CTP coming out PDQ. That's "community technology preview,"
of course, and, in this case, "pretty darn quick" -- hey, it's a family
blog -- is some time in the next couple of weeks.
Seriously, though, we need more names like Hyper-V for Microsoft products.
What do you suggest? What should we call Windows Server or SQL Server to make
them sound a little more hip? Send me your suggestions at [email protected].
