The first 2011 update to my Microsoft Codename Tracker chart is done and ready for download.
As usual, there are a handful of new codename additions since last month's chart. One of the newest is "Rome," a codename I believe will become more visible as 2011 progresses.
Rome, my sources say, is Mediaroom for Windows Phone 7. Mediaroom is Microsoft's IPTV offering, I've got more details on Rome in the introduction to this month’s Codename Tracker.
The Codename Tracker PDF is the same chart I use myself to keep up with the codenames of products and technologies coming from Microsoft.
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.
