Visual Studio 2003 = Everett


Visual Studio 2005 = Whidbey


Next version = Orcas


Next Next version = Hawaii


 


Everett is a city north of Seattle where the new Boeing 787 is being built.  Whidbey and Orcas are Islands in the Pacific Northwest.  I’ve been to Orcas Island a few times and its a nice place.  Haven’t been to Hawaii yet though 🙂


I’ve always wondered who at Microsoft comes up with these code names.
