Problem is, I think its not legal. - Emir214 08:10, 30 October 2006 (UTC) (I'll upload one from the SuperSite.)

Merge with Windows Neptune[edit]

I don't think a merger is necessary, since this article only talks about the build and the article talks on the builds and features. - Emir214 09:15, 2 November 2006 (UTC)

It's not merging. It's directing to the main article of Windows Neptune210.213.86.61 03:31, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

References[edit]

Neptune and Oddysey[edit]

If Neptune was slated to be a home edition of Windows 2000, and Oddyesy is Neptune's bussiness counterpart, than what's the difference between Oddyesy and Windows 2000? Also, is build 2211 Neptune or Whistler? (Article calls it both.) Josh the Nerd 02:28, 26 May 2007 (UTC) Josh

Centralized discussion: Merged content of Neptune/Odyssey[edit]

The articles Windows Neptune and Windows Odyssey redirect here. It has been a continual struggle to maintain those as redirects as various IP addresses repeatedly remove the redirect. The individual content at those articles is completely unsourced and speculative OR. If you remove all the uncited text, there is no text to those articles. These were N+1 R&D projects, not anything ever intended for commercial release (as claimed, uncited, by the text in the redirected articles).

If there is some reliably sourced information about these projects it is welcome here. SchmuckyTheCat (talk)

Listen, you're merging the articles without even reaching a consensus first, and you keep ignoring, what I said on both articles' talk pages. You don't WP:OWN the articles, so stop behaving, like you do. You haven't posted a single WP:SOURCE, that says, that Neptune, and Odyssey, were simply, N+1 R&D projects, and not anything ever intended for commercial release, whereas both articles have sources that have Microsoft correspondent Paul Thurrott clearly stating, that Windows Neptune was intended for release, and that Odyssey, or NT 6.0, was planned for release as well, as successor to Neptune.
So, what you're claiming, is pure, un-sourced POV. And let me remember, that you already stated wrong information before, in the Windows 3.1 article, where you stated that Windows 3.2 Simplified Chinese was a for Workgroups version, with the specifically for Workgroups tools left in English, and I'm glad, that Wengier Wu, from the China DOS Union, corrected you on that.
Now, given your above-mentioned precedent of posting false information on Wikipedia, I'd suggest you to stop editing articles, before thoroughly discussing the stuff you wish to edit, and reaching consensus, on their talk pages.
And, again, you don't WP:OWN these articles, and you haven't provided any WP:SOURCEs for your claims, so cut it off with your re-directs right now. I tried to reach you in the articles' talk pages, you ignored it.
Yes, I can see, that you merged articles, because you thought, that no-one opposed your merge proposal, but the mere fact, that so many people reverted your continuous merges, clearly means, that they're being opposed, so basically, the majority consensus seems to be to keep the articles, as they are, so your merges are against the consensus. You can't pretend, that you, one person, have the ultimate say on the articles, whereas the other plethora of people opposing your proposed changes, don't. - OBrasilo (talk) 15:48, 13 October 2009 (UTC)
You have this backwards. You need to provide sources, not me. I am removing unsourced content with the merge. SchmuckyTheCat (talk)
You are merging WITHOUT A CONSENSUS. You do not WP:OWN the articles, so stay back! And un-sourced content should be primarily tagged with the fact tag, not removed, as you're doing. Honestly, THREE DIFFERENT PEOPLE reverted your damn merges, I'd say this is a consensus to NOT merge the articles, so your edits are AGAINST THE CONSENSUS.
And sources? There are sources by Paul Thurrott, which clearly state, that both OS'es were intended for release, published in both articles. So your edits are AGAINST THE SOURCES. You don't WP:OWN the articles, so stay back! - OBrasilo (talk) 13:32, 14 October 2009 (UTC)

The startup sound is based on Windows 2000 Startup and Windows 98 Shutdown but reversed (and its without the bells).

Should the page be moved to Microsoft Codename Whistler?[edit]

I think it's a better name and it fits what the page is about. So, can we reach a consenous on if the page will be moved?
