Windows It was announced yesterday that the Microsoft OS code-named Windows 7 will be shipping as "Windows 7," exciting and surprising many. There was much question, even in our own piece, as to how Microsoft arrived at 7 for an OS likely destined to be version 6.1. Microsoft answered our question in a post called "Why 7?" on the Windows Vista Blog.

Well I think they would be better off using the year rather than a contrived number, atleast I can remember when Win95, W2000 came out and you can't argue about that if it ships on time.

For the programmer though 6.x is fine,
