    Panther in Vista

    After installing Vista RC1, there's a folder created in \Windows directory
    called 'Panther' which has some log files and other files.
    Does anybody know why this folder has been named as Panther?
    Does this folder still there in Final ver. of Vista?

    That is the folder where setup logs are stored.

    \windows\panther folder is in RTM. Looks like Windows setup stuff. Why they
    named it Panther? Dunno.

    name it something...

    Re: Panther in Vista-->Panther congenital phenom wants to be Tiger

    Panther is the genetics term for the birth of a mamal that wanted to be a
    Tiger but did not have enough of the genetic code appropriate to become one

    However, in the annals of genetics there is a convoluted history where the
    tradition of steeling was upheld by both the Panther camp from MSFT and the
    Tiger camp from Apple and both stole from Xerox Park and IBM.

    Microsoft like to use the names of places, colors, and other things that
    cannot infringe on copyrights. Other than that, who knows. Ben Armstrong
    of MS told me one time that they have a service running at MS that they can
    pick names from for projects, etc. Who knows.

    Is everybody missing the point that Mac OSX 10.3 is called Panther? I think
    it was a bit of tongue-in-cheek at Redmond.

    Re: Panther in Vista

    No, no one is missing the point. When I asked in a TechBeta chat about the
    name some time ago we were told that the usage predates OS/X Panther. It
    may not even be new to Vista.
