Windows BSE

I've heard a rumour (that's all it is at this point) that the next version of Windows to hit store shelves in the future (code named Longhorn) will be called Windows e-XPedition.

OK, if that's even true - I think they're making a big mistake. What will we call it when our natural tendency to abbreviate the name kicks in? For instance, we refer to previous versions as "95", "98", "NT", "me", "w2k" and "XP".

What would we call e-XPedition? "E"? Why don't we just call it what everyone's been calling it - Longhorn?
