    I like Windows 8. I never liked the special names nor do I like it when they add a year to it. Too many people ask if it is Server 2008 isn't that 2 years old isn't there a Server 2010 now?? UGH!

    I just remembered something: the address of Apple's headquarters is 1 Infinite Loop, Cupertino, CA 95014.

    I don't think Microsoft wants to use a name even so remotely connected to Apple?

    No wonder they cannot come up with anything new!

    Have to agree.

    Windows Infinity makes it sound like a car or something. Plus it sounds too final. Makes it sound like it's the last and best OS from Windows. To Infinity and Beyond...

    Yeah, if there's "Infinity", then logically, there couldn't be anything after that.

    But, then again, this is Microsoft, so we all know better.

    Don't like it. Also didn't like the name Vista.

    Yes, i do like that idea...And Infinity doesn't mean it is the lastest Os. Looks for me as a friendly nickname, impersonal name that can suit both sex.
    It's too obvious to be called 8 even if it suit very well. Give them both...?!?

    Of course it's obvious to be called Windows 8. Like I've said before, I don't think after all this time that they started with naming it a number, with Windows 7, that they'd change it to some random name again. Logical step is to proceed with a number from now on.

    It has to be infinitely better than "Windows Experience" (XP) right?

    I do like the name Infinity but that is a very suggestive name..... IMO it suggests that it will be the last windows or it will be a very long running windows of 20+ years before windows 9 becomes a twinkle in Microsoft's eye

    Evolution on the other hand would be a good name as it suggests that windows has evolved which will be true in this case since its supposed to run on a all new Kernel
