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.

Inflate the build number?

Couldn't they just up the build number to 7.0.0xxx? So at least the name and the build number match? It wouldn't be the first time in history that an OS skipped a number.
