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.

Doesn't matter 10 > 7! I've used Vista for a few weeks now and I hate it. Windows & (bad name!) will have to be something special to stop me moving to OSX.

Yeah, and Ubuntu is about to reach 8.10. 8.10 is greater than 7 so Ubuntu must be much better than Windows 7. Though I'm not sure if I should switch to Solaris -- it is in version 10 already, so it must be superior.

I'm not sure about how I feel about Vista. I somehow can't decide on its quality.

Anyhow, I'm relieved to know that Windows 7 will be called Windows 7 because... because. This was a great article.
