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.

So in windows world apps do things like:

if $WINDOWS_VERSION != $KNOWN_GOOD {
crash();
}

??

That is amazing programming achievement! They should patent it!
