I’m, alas, a salami!

In a previous post, I revealed that my favourite MacBU code name was Taco Cat. None of you guys rose to the bait to make any guesses about what it could be! Oh, readers, how disappointed I am in you! Le sigh. I've been let down by the nameless faceless Internet.

Taco Cat was the code name for Virtual PC 7. Why? Astute readers might have noticed that this code name is a palindrome. The geek joke here is that VPC is itself a palindrome because it has to go between big endian and little endian.

For an amusing couple of minutes, you can read this list of palindromes. Some of them aren't appropriate for code names, especially that one about Tulsa.
