Name your child Vista, too late it's been done.

Much though I think Vista is a good operating system I don't think I'd name my child after it, someone has. click here

Football team are common and pop stars too, but operating systems?

I'm sure she would not like to have been called OS X 10.5 Simser.

has a nice ring to it, and I'm sure she'll be happy with her name when she's old enough to think about such things.

Unlike Annette, the daughter of builder Bob Curten.

Goodnight Vienna then!

One consolation is that when she's sixteen she can legally change her first name(s) if she's so minded. My daughter did just that, from Lesley Jayne to Adrienne Jay! TC.

Well, OSs have been named after people ... Linux of course is named after Linus Torvalds; and the Debian distro is named after its developer Ian Murdock and his wife Debra.

I think it's absurd, and my daughter, ZX81, agrees with me

By the time she goes to infants school they wont even remember what Vista was!

Thats just not fair on her, her parents didn't give her a chance in life. What happens when she needs to start driving? She is just gonna crash every 10 minutes.

which is more than the hundreds of thousands of girls called Chardonnay are ever likely to be.

Si_L lol and also she will need patched every few weeks and I wonder if her parents will stop supporting her when the next child comes along;-)

They will probably call their next kid Linux, and then constantly bicker over which kid they prefer.
