    A distant view or prospect, especially one seen through an opening, as between rows of buildings or trees.

    An avenue or other passage affording such a view.

    An awareness of a range of time, events, or subjects; a broad mental view: “the deep and sweeping vistas these pioneering critics opened up” (Arthur C. Danto)."

    So, which is it, I wonder?

  2. Steven says:

    Given the time until expected release I’d say that, for now, it’s definitely a "Distant view or prospect".

    Vista? Sounds stupid. Longhorn (and the icons created for it) is so much better. I refuse to refer to Longhorn as anything but Longhorn. LONG LIVE THE LONGHORN REVOLUTION!

    Good. MS is getting sued by a company that already has Vista trademarked. YAY! Come back to Longhorn! COME BACK!
