Say howdy to the Vista Southern Edition

Keeping track of the different versions of Windows was hard enough, with all the different flavors of Vista and antitrust variations of XP.

Now Microsoft blogger Charlie Owen has let slip technical details of Windows Vista Southern Edition RC1, an update of the old Winders XP chestnut.

Owens said Winders Vista has exclusive programs:

Tiperiter………a word processing program

Colerin’ Book……………..a graphics program

Cyferin’ Mersheen………..calculator

Outhouse Paper…………….notepad

Inner-net………………..Internet Explorer 7.0

Pitchers …………………..a graphics viewer

Bubba Tube………………..Windows Media Center

He said customers inconvenienced by the new product may return it for a copy of “Windows Vista Home Premium Ultimate Redneck Edition (codenamed ‘Hee Haw’).”

Microsoft hasn’t said exactly when they’ll ship — it still has to git-r-done.
