  • My vote for the next Windows version name: Win10 Effluvium

    Posted on October 31st, 2018 at 15:57 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    Looks like Microsoft’s going to continue with “19H1” as the codename for the next version of windows. Mary Jo Foley reports — and a screenshot from Tero Alhonen confirms – that the next versions are due to be codenamed:

    Win10 Vanadium

    Win10 Vibranium

    Win10 Manganese

    I’d like to offer an alternative:

    Win10 Effluvium

    Has a certain… ring to it.

      well, it seems 1809 won’t come out today, that’s a good sign that they are truly trying to make this stable.

      Just someone who don't want Windows to mess with its computer.

        In the ‘Avatar’ movie, ‘Unobtanium’ had an incalculable value, unlike the unfit-for-purpose OS that passes for Windows today.

      Wouldn’t Windows 10 users just settle for a minimum of 12 months between versions, regardless of their name?

      Of course we could go with the “absurdum or vomitum” nomenclature.

      “19H1” sounds more like an influenza viral classification than an OS revision number.

      Well, these responses are all rather negative. Have you all forgotten that Microsoft generously gave away this OS to those who had a worthless Windows 7 license laying around? Foreseeing the time in the not too distant future when all Windows 7 support would end, I used one of my worthless licenses to get this wonderfully free gift. So, out of gratitude to my most generous benefactor I would like to suggest the new name for this “gift” to be “Windows 10 White Elephant edition”.

      I nominate Windows 10 Insanium, as in “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

      Come to think of it, that could be the only version name needed for the last version of Windows… And isn’t that just a little sad…
