Think you know the answer?
But, but, but..... Windows Neptune! It was made into Windows 2000! THIS IS NOT FAIR!
Correct answer is Win 2000.
Actually Windows Neptune was never released, and it was not Windows 2000. I'll edit the trivia description to mention this.
According to Wikipedia and its explicit citations on this topic, Windows 2000 64 bit was codenamed Janus, while Windows 3.11 3.10 and WFW were named "snowball". The citation is at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Microsoft_codenames
What is true is always true. What people say is true is an expression of their private reality; one which may or may not be shared with a collaborative group of people at the source. Thus, whatever it actually is or was, I cannot argue, but there are other sources claiming authority on this matter which do not concur.
And... you are right.
I've edited the trivia item with the correct answer now. Sorry for all the confusion, and thanks for pointing that out!
Well, wrong reason, right answer. What else do I want? :tongue2:PS: The pic is still Win3.1.
Thanks for pointing that out. I've updated the image now.
Been studying this recently, so fresh on my mind!
I was always amused by Vista -"Longhorn"- originally being named after a cow....most appropriate. (or in the UK a beetle whose grubs eat your furniture)!
