The December update to my Microsoft Codename Tracker chart is done and ready for download.
There are a bunch of new codenames in this month's update, including one I've been chasing for a while: "Thunderbay." Thunderbay isn't a product codename; it's an Entertainment and Devices strategy codename. I provide more details on Microsoft Thunderbay in the introduction to this month's Codename Tracker. (There are several other new Microsoft codenames, plus updates to many of the existing ones, in the Tracker, as well.)
The Codename Tracker PDF is the same chart I use myself to keep up with the codenames of products and technologies coming from Microsoft. This newest version adds a number of new database- and cloud-specific codenames, plus updates to a number of the already-existing entries.
If you’ve already registered on ZDNet, you can just grab the latest version. If you haven’t, registration info will be requested before you download it. Whether you’re a Microsoft customer, partner, analyst, competitor (or even employee), you might find the Tracker useful.
If there’s a Microsoft codename missing from my chart that you’d like me to check out and ultimately add, please don’t hesitate to contact me via e-mail. I’m working on fleshing out several new reader suggestions and hope to be adding them to the next update of the tracker. Just so you know: All e-mails I receive are treated as confidential — unless you want a mention/credit line, of course.
