Windows XP N
Contributed by: SHA, at 3/29/2005 05:39:00 PM.

How does Microsoft Windows XP NIWMP grab you?
It didn't do much for European regulators, either.
That was one of nine names they rejected for the special version of Windows that will be sold in Europe without Windows Media Player bundled in the system. Instead, after surveying consumers, the European Union decided the product must be called Windows XP Home N or Windows XP Professional N, depending on the version.
"We were disappointed they rejected all nine names that we proposed," spokeswoman Stacy Drake said.

After the European Union rejected Windows XP Reduced Media Edition as the name for a stripped-down version of Windows planned for Europe, Microsoft suggested nine alternatives:
Windows XP/N
Windows XP/B
Windows Not Including Windows Media Player
Windows Not Incorporating Windows Media Player
Windows NIWMP
Windows OS/U.
Windows OS/B
Windows OS/N
Windows OS/C

And the lucky name selected is Windows XP N
