The original term VISTA means VIEW, for example a panoramic scene, sight from vantage point, etc. Multilingual applications in names, for example "Buena Vista", "Bella Vista", etc. Having a good view from a house is an asset.

Companies have been named "Vista" or Vista something or other for a long while. I don't object to Microsoft naming their new variant operating system "Vista", although I'll be a bit annoyed if they start suing all the other places called Vista out of existence.

If your company/house/name etc is VISTA, you might like to be added to this list as a precautionary measure just in case of that eventuality. e-mail here
