Ditty”. Chairman Bill Gates commented in a recent statement that they based their new naming on the success that rapper P. Diddy had when changing his name from Sean Puffy Combs to Puff Daddy, to P. Diddy. “It was only logical”, said Gates. “Who would want Windows XPedite? Everyone wants X.P.Ditty! “To further appeal to the hipness of our users and continue the coolness trend here at Microsoft”, he said, “we are also working on the new slogan for X.P. Ditty. Currently, our best one is ‘X’s Gonn’ Give It To ‘Ya’ based on the number one hit by another rapper: DMX. “With great advertising like that, we are destined to succeed.” Stay tuned.
