Windows Odyssey


Windows Odyssey

"Odyssey" was a codename for a version of Microsoft Windows that was in development from early 1999 to early 2000. The goal of "Odyssey" was to develop a successor to the NT-based Windows 2000 that was developed for business users. The same codebase, NT 6.0, [cite web |url=http://www.winsupersite.com/faq/2000_old.asp |title=Paul Thurrott's SuperSite for Windows: Windows 2000 FAQ |accessdate=2008-03-13 |last=Thurrott |first=Paul |work=Paul Thurrott's SuperSite for Windows |publisher=WindowsITPro |quote="Odyssey" is the code-name for the next major version of Windows 2000, which would have been called Windows NT 6.0 had Microsoft not messed with the naming in late 1998.] was going to be used in creating Windows Neptune, the "home" counterpart to "Odyssey". (The version number "NT 6.0", but not the name, was later recycled for Microsoft's Windows Vista operating system.) There were some publicly leaked builds of "Neptune". However, after the release of Windows 2000, the "Neptune" and "Odyssey" teams were combined with the Windows 2000 team to work on the "Whistler" project that was released in late 2001 as Windows XP.
