Unknown Microsoft Cairo Photo (1993)

Post by win2leak »

I found Microsoft Cairo and Chicago photos but Microsoft Cairo looks rare because it uses Windows Chicago's shell. Unfortunately I cannot found original picture of Microsoft Cairo.

This particular build of Cairo seems to have been demoed at PDC 93 along with Chicago build 73(g). But anyway, this was already posted back in 2008.

When you read "XP" in "Windows XP" as Greek letters, the pronunciation is "X" for "kai" and "P" for "lo". In other words, "XP" can be read as "Cairo
I'm just read this line and blow my mind, is that true?

@adrian1994 Yes, the greek X is chi (pronounced "cai") and the greek P is rho (pronounced "row")

Then does that mean there is a relationship between Cairo and XP?

the greek letter Χ is pronounced CHI as in "helium" not Kai. So no, it's not.
