Windows 7 keeps its name


Microsoft has decided to keep the codename Windows 7 as the final name for it’s latest release of Windows.


Mike Nash, made the announcement on the Windows Vista Blog saying “Now is a good time to announce that we’ve decided to officially call the next version of Windows, ‘Windows 7’.” “While I know there have been a few cases at Microsoft when the codename of a product was used for the final release, I am pretty sure that this is a first for Windows,” he added.


He explained the rational behind the name by adding “Simply put, this is the seventh release of Windows, so therefore ‘Windows 7’ just makes sense.”
