Monday MS announce the new OS and office Suite XP brand, standing for experince.

an investor article is here: (hold on to the MSFT stock boys and girls)

and Microsoft's article is here:

so what does this have to do with Halo your asking, well you all know that MS is producing Halo for the x-box, and given that it (microsoft) is under fire right now about the name x-box, see this article:

which is also listed on the front page of HBO yesterday (sorry louis)

could this be a reflection and/or indicator of how MS will re-name the x-box if they decide not to buy Xbox Technologies and loose in court.

think of it, new os, Windows XP, new office suite Microsoft Office XP, new Game Console = XP-Box, new game title, Halo XP

just a thought on how a company decision can really effect the branding of an item. Pallor will be able to lend some input, since she is a marketing goddess, as to any complications a new name might bring forth.

Better get Jaime working on new logo (hahahahaha)


Please RE-name me
