For those, like me, who like keeping track of Microsoft codenames, here are a couple of new ones to add to your file:
Austin: Austin is Version 2.0 of ResponsePoint, which is Microsoft’s self-described IP/VOIP PBX phone software for small businesses. Microsoft released a first version of ResponsePoint to interested phone makers in 2007. Earlier this month, Microsoft made available for download Service Pack (SP) 1 for ResponsePoint.
Zermatt: “Zermatt is a destination in Switzerland, shown above, that benefits from what Nietzsche calls ‘the air at high altitudes, with which everything in animal being grows more spiritual and acquires wings,’” according to Kim Cameron, Microsoft’s Chief Architect of Identity. It’s also the codename for a new identity app-dev framework, or IDFX, a beta of which Microsoft released last week via the Microsoft Connect site.
