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 must admit I'm disappointed.

vista = view, and ultimate = last

So logically Windows Vista Ultimate (tm) must be the last version of windows ever seen.

:(

They might be smarter to name it 6.1. People will (rightly) wait for windows 7.1
