Codename pick of the week: Lightning/Project 42

In honor of .NET’s 15th birthday this week, today’s codenames are the ones used for CLR/.NET Framework 1.0. Some called this NGWS (Next Generation Windows Services). Some say this was Lighting. Some called it Project 42.  Why 42? Dev Div was in Building 42.
