Microsoft is known to have code names for their products and eventually changing its name a few months before its release. For the successor of Windows Vista, named Windows 7, it most likely that Microsoft is going to create another name for it since “7″ doesn’t cut it because they have never named Windows in a number version.
ZDNet is running a survey with the following options:
Windows Vista R2
None of the above
My money is on the “None of the above” because Microsoft would most likely choose something that has a new ring to it like “Vista” & “XP”. Steve Ballmer announced recently that they would have Windows for the internet and even if Windows 7 is not that operating system, the name should definitely connect with whatever online initiative they have. Windows Connect perhaps?
