btw. i have asked me recently:
why did MS called it longhorn.. and landed on this:

Every wonder where the name "Longhorn" comes from? I did and heard a little story that went like this:

Come and listen to a story about a man named Gates
A rich pioneer looking to keep Windows rich (with features of course)
And then one day while skiing Blackcomb and Whistler too
He had to make a pit-stop along a highway 99 jewel
...Longhorn bar that is, pints of beer, burgers too....

Well the first thing you know ol Gates got an idea
The patrons said "Longhorn is what we got here"
said "Vector GDI is the place you ought to be"
So Gates tipped his glass and said "thank you kindly"

Avalon, that is, WinFS and FX too.

... Y'all come back now, y'hear?

But since i post it on our CC-page, take a look at the logo and please tell me it is just my imagination and i'm freaking out from the NWO stuff:
