Microsoft and the European Union have agreed on a name for the European version of Windows XP.

That name is Windows XP Home Edition N.

According to an article at CBSNews.com,

“Officials at the U.S. software giant said they had accepted the European Union’s offer to call the European version of Windows sold without Media Player ‘Windows XP Home Edition N’ – with ‘N’ standing for ‘not with media player.’

Microsoft’s ‘XP Professional Edition’ will also include the ‘N’ for versions sold without the media player.’

Microsoft did want to call it Windows XP Reduced Media Edition, but the EU thought that consumers wouldn’t find the name appealing.
