    7 Ultimate x64 RTM 7600.16385 (MSDN)


    IMO it would be 8.xx series plus x64 only, by the time it comes out, surely PC systems will have at least 4gb (or even more)... just my opinion

    I predicted a bit back that the Windows 7 Service Pack numbers would follow Vista's precedent and be 6.1.7600(RTM)->6.1.7601(SP1)->6.1.7602(SP2)

    Blast Microsoft and their ever need to change VS numbers...looks like SP1 of 7 will be 7700...I guess it is reasonable to assume that SP2 will be 7800 and if...IF they do a SP3 than it might be 7900 which could provide a lead in for Win8 to beta at 8000

    All speculation of course...won't be too long before we know (time flies)

    Windows 8 Pro


    If they do an overhaul of the kernel (and i think if its moving to 64bit and 128bit only they will, to make certain developers actually write some 64 bit apps) i reckon it will be 7.x and will have some fancy name like say.... Windows Evolution but probably not as Corny,

    OR they will call it Windows 8, and to hell with the Version numbers,
