Microsoft Announces New Windows and Office Names

Microsoft announced today in a statement that it will be officially calling its upcoming version of Windows and Office Windows XP and Office XP respectively. Rumors circulated last week as one BetaNews reader said he had heard a Microsoft representative slip the names in a seminar, and ZDNet reported on it last Friday. The "XP" stands for Experience, according to the release and the Reuters report. Bill Gates told reporters "These breakthrough versions of Windows and Office will give people the most powerful end-to-end computing experiences ever available." Stay tuned as both products are set to launch by the end of this year.
