Time for another name change!
Nav 2009 formerly Nav 6.0 formerly NAV 5.1

Kinda like the artist formerly known as Prince is now Prince again.

Maybe we should start betting on how many name changes there will be before it is finally released!

    Actually not entirely correct.

    It was Microsoft Dynamics NAV 5.1
    Then it was Microsoft Dynamics NAV "6.0".
    --> the quotes indicated it was a codename.
    Apparently a codename for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009

    I think the internal name will still be version 6. The marketing name is Nav 2009 in keeping with the external marketing conventions for Office products.

    That would sound much better than using version numbers. It's also consistent with the naming of other Microsoft products.

    Except Halo 2 is not called Halo 2007.

    Consistency...

    NAV 2009
    GP 2009
    AX 2009

    First step to merging products is to assign same name? :)

    Hehe... yeah, Green would sound percect... you know, global warming, and all that stuff :)
  • garakgarak Member Posts: 3,263
    Jupp, on Cebit a big theme was "Green IT". :-D
    So, M$ will go back to the old internal name: Green (with flowers)
    Do you make it right, it works too!

    Lets try "Never" - thought it was dropped as a project.

    i agree with Blackie. By the time it hits the market, if it does, it's definitely gonna be an entire different product than what most of us would imagine.

    Imagination can be a crazy thing. Best to put some restrictions on it. :mrgreen:

    The only thing I can think of when reading about the new product is... how am I going to Read The Freaking Manual when the product keeps changing?

    Green, 5.1, 6.0, now NAV2009... ARGH!

    FIND/REPLACE ALL.
    Name changes are nothing. Scope changes are. Until now, not much of the scope has changed ... .
    By the way .. there's not really a manual, is there?

    Remember when they came out with 'Attain'? I run into a lot of people that call the app lots of different things, with lots of different pronounciations, and NOBODY ever calls it "Attain" anymore.

    Maybe we (as in Mibuso/DUG members) should come up with code names for 'the next version'. That way MS can change the name all they want, but we'd still be talking about the same thing.

    Why to create new code names when we have "official" one.

    NAV 2009 (2008)
    "Malta" (2009)
    "Mallorca" (2010)
