Windows 7 is now official
“But now is a good time to announce that we’ve decided to officially call the next version of Windows, Windows 7.” Nash wrote on his blog.
Nash said that they chose Window 7 as the official name for the product because of simplicity. He explained that they have used inspirational monikers (XP, Vista) and dates (Windows 98, 2000) for their recent releases. And since new versions of Windows do not ship on a yearly basis that kind of branding doesn’t fit.
“Simply put, this is the seventh release of Windows, so therefore “Windows 7″ just makes sense.”
