As the Professional Developers Conference approaches, Microsoft plans not only to discuss their currently code-named Windows 7 product but also to distribute a pre-beta version among attendees. Many have been wondering what the official name will be once the next release of Windows hits the streets.
In a quick announcement today on the companys Windows Vista Team Blog, Mike Nash, the corporate vice president of Windows product management revealed what some already suspected: Windows 7 will be officially called
Windows 7. He went on to explain that the company opted to keep the '7' name for simplicity as this is the seventh release of Windows and because Microsoft doesn't want to come up with a new aspirational name that simply wouldnt do justice to their goal of staying firmly rooted in the ideas of Vista while evolving and refining the operating system.
Personally, I like the fact that they are keeping it simple and Im looking forward to learn more about Windows 7 in the coming weeks. So there you have it, what do you think of the new name?
