shorthorn - Computer Definition
A disparaging reference to the Vista version of Windows, which was code-named Longhorn. It was coined in 2004 when Microsoft announced it would not include the advanced WinFS storage subsystem. Although Vista was released with a host of new features, many users anticipated that WinFS would be one of the most significant enhancements. See Windows Vista and WinFS.
