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
