well, i heard about that too, i also heard about "286", but "286" sounds not really realistic to me anymore, and presentation manager was OS/2

I was in the Vista SP1 beta program and I can say with %100 certainty that it never had a codename, It was just called the "Vista SP1 Beta", and neither did XP SP3, it was just called the "XP SP3 Beta".

There seems to be a huge argument about if Wikipedia's info is trustworthy. Many seem to say no. But some people say that since Wikipedia is moderated, they will delete any bull they find. Everyone seems to have a different understanding about Wikipedia.

Originally Microsoft called N editions as "Windows XP Reduced Media Edition" and then renamed it to its final forms. But I think that they talked about Reduced Media Edition not as about a codename, but possible retail name, and changed it because of EU's Comission request. But that's all we know about N's editions branding history.

It wasn't a request as much as a lawsuit. Microsoft apparently "broke an EU law" by packaging Media Player with XP. Eventually they released Windows XP without Media Player.

Even though this version of XP didn't sell very well, it spawned an interest in certain beta collectors to try out XP without Media Player.

Back on topic, I'm pretty sure Windows 2.x didn't have a codename. Windows 1.x was originally supposed to be called Interface Manager but was renamed to Windows. I think then Windows 2.x followed the same name and had no codename.

Ok, that would explain that i never found any of those boths, but sad if microsoft really stopped codenaming SP's

yes, i also know that, ive got a "Reduced Media Edition" cd here i think, but that wasnt the codename for sure, its like xp starters codename, everybody told me there is no one, but then i found out it was creekside (when you know it gooling is so easy )

Apparently, Steven Sinofsky, senior vice president for the Windows and the Windows Live Engineering Group, would rather deal with product numbers than codenames. Therefore, Sinofsky has shifted Microsoft away from the tradition of giving things codenames. Hence the lack of codename for Vista SP1, XP SP3 and the name Windows 7.
