Windows Vista wont Use My Prefix

If you are a Windows  user, there's a big change coming in Longhorn -- the code name for the next MS operating system: the "My" prefix is disappearing.

Windows Vista wont Use My Prefix

Microsoft users have become used to the "My Music," "My Pictures," and other "My" folders. Those Windows folders will still be yours -- but they won't keep hitting you over the head with that terminology.

Ending a longstanding tradition, Microsoft says, starting in the next Windows version due out next year, folders will be known simply as "Documents," "Music," and so on.

The "My" prefix was apparently an attempt to create a personal connection between people and their computers at a time when the idea of using a computer might have been forbidding.
