Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

I note that Coop Norway has changed the name of its XP series to “Coop X-tra”. I wonder if it is because they think “XP” has gotten a negative image?

Det finns ju en historia om 17-årige Mike Rowe i Kanada som krävts att ta bort sin webbsida, för att den till namnet påminner alltför mycket om ett visst varumärke. Jag vet inte om det är påhittat eller sant, men om det är på riktigt är det fruktansvärt sorgligt.

Peter svarar: En artikel i The Register verkar bekräfta historien. Kul att Microsoft lägger ned sin tid på så viktiga frågor.
