Symel GIF Cartoon Twenty: Why Vista?

If you are using a graphical browser then there is a problem on my site, if you are using a text based browser then this is normal. Here is a text version of the cartoon (speech in capitals): Symel is at her computer, she ponders on why it is called Windows Vista. She decides to look Vista up in Wiktionary to find out what it exactly means. The definition is A DISTANT VEIW OR PROSPECT, ESPICALLY ONE SEEN THROUGH AN OPENING. Symel thinks about this for a little while before deciding WINDOWS VISTA: THE CHANCES OF IT WORKING ARE DISTANT!

Comments: A lesson in entomology (the study of language) for my viewers. This was made before Vista was a well known failure!
