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.

I have to ask...

Between here and Slashdot I've shrugged off the last few articles about the naming of a windows point release as non-news and moved on. But considering that articles are still being posted on the matter, I have to ask, is there a point to such nitpicking?

Will this in anyway affect the feature set, or the hardware requirements, or the severity of drm,...?

I just can't image that we're really so starved for information on the release that the top discussion on the matter is which numerical value they should have chose.
