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.

Why is this so important? Most users don't even know what version of their OS runs on their computers. Heck, I bet a lot of people wouldn't notice the name even if it was called "Windows Wang" or something.

Anyway, I'll take a number over Vista, Fiesta or any other word in spanish anytime. Yeah, a good "View" through the "Windows", pretty clever. My native tongue is spanish, and saying Windows Vista can't sound any more stupid (also, Terminator memories, ugh).

Edit: Typo.
