Microsoft Midori: the Melon-flavored Windows Replacement

I had to read that a couple of times. Microsoft Midori.

Microsoft is now looking into the world, post-Windows. This BBC story tells us that MS has become aware that many people are no longer tied to a single machine; rather, they are promiscuous with the devices they use to consume data.

To cope, they are set to create an OS that will accomodate such behavior. And the project shares its name with a melon-flavored liqueur. Midori. [it also means “green” in Japanese, tells me the Wikipedia entry.]

Microsoft names projects after alcoholic drinks, and the BBC tells me that I am promiscuous. Somebody had a good weekend. Wow, it really is Monday morning…
