    That will probably become the most mispronounced word on the net in the future...

    "You using that Tulip?"
    "You mean Tulalip?"
    "Errr...yeah that"
  5. That is a horrible name. Doomed to fail from the name alone.

    LOL.. I live in Seattle and the Tulalip tribe are all over the place, including owning a bunch of casinos. Now I'm curious to see how much they're going to demand from MS to use their name.

    I would assume that Tulalip is the internal project name since it's an unannounced product. If it ever gets released I'm sure it would be called something different, hopefully it would not include the word 'Windows' in its name.

    "Accidental" leak and horrible name aside, do we really need another social network?
