Microsoft may be in trouble for naming its forthcoming operating system Vista after it transpired that the name has been registered by an American company for nearly six years.

Vista, which operates a small business internet interchange, is actually based in Microsoft's home town of Redmond. It was started in May 2000 by John Wall, the founder of Wall Data and an erstwhile investor in SCO.



For those of you who don't know, Vista is the new name for Longhorn.

eh...it's Microsoft. They can do whatever they want.

I'm sure they'll figure out a way to buy the name or something.

Yeah, I'm sure that little company will soon have a very good opinion of Microsoft.
