Until now, every WinCE OS codename was based on trees, and the development tools were based on tree-chopping utensils. Proposed codenames for Windows CE 4.0 were going to be DougFir (Douglas Fir) for the OS and "Dozer" (Bulldozer) for the tools. But the teams creating the new OS decided to change the codenames to names of whiskeys, so we have:

It does indeed exist, it's basically Windows 7 Embedded, and its codename is Quebec. It hit CTP and CTP2 in the latter part of last year but isn't final yet. It does seem to be getting some promotions and demos though, so it can't be far away.

You missed one:

Windows 96-Nashville
---
Windows Desktop Update, Internet Explorer 4.0
---
Cancelled upgrade for Windows 95; sometimes referred to in the press as Windows 96. Codename was reused for Internet Explorer 4.0 which incorporated many of the technologies planned for Nashville.

NOTE: WINDOWS NASHVILLE WAS NEVER RELEASE AFTER BUILD 999

I think that Cairo isn't NT4... Cairo imho is a collection of new technologies developed in 1991-96. But NT4 is one of the operating systems, which grew up from Cairo.

Windows Codename Tiger was actually tthe name of the succesor of ME which was never released and I don't think there is any build released of him.

Wrong. There were never any such plans officially, and there are no proofs that there were some inofficially too. Tiger indeed was the codename of NetShow.

Where do you want to go today?

Favourite OS
All Microsoft operating systems!
I believe that it's actually both, NetShow and Windows Me2 (Millenium Edition 2). Microsoft reuses codenames a lot, and this just seems like another one of those times in which the same codename was used for two products.

They reuse but not use both at the same time.
I think it's the NetShow codename, and not ME 2, in that time ME was the last one and no other 9x build has been planned, only rumours.

NetShow has evidence as reference to NetShow, but not ME v2.
I tend to agree with Daniel & KenOath more, then people claiming it as ME v2.

As David Nucrdale said, there are no proofs that Microsoft planned ME v2. I think the whole Tiger thing is similar to the Georgia myth, as we know Georgia wasn't the codename for ME...

Actually Microsoft re-used the codename Tiger, first time for OS/2 v1.3, second time NetShow.
