    The name doesn't really matter to me as long as it's a good OS.

    Thanks for the replies, guys. I'll have to check my subscription settings in the CP because I never received any notices.

    I agree -- Win8 is a good name. Let's hope it sticks.

    I think after a successful launch of 7 they would call their next release 8. Possibly a code name first, but we'll see sooner or later.

    Windows 8's codename will either be Midori

    And if it turns out that it's not, my guess is that the codename will be Disappointing

    Midori sounds awesome though. Would hate to have to wait to Windows 9 or 10 (see how easy it is to talk about future versions of Windows now!) to get all the stuff Midori is.

    The thing is, that everyone is getting geared up for a so called "Windows 8". If Microsoft goes off with some other name, that is going to a) disrupt the flow of the OS's causing people to have their doubts and b) Confuse people that want to keep it simple.

    So if you ask me, Microsoft is quite likley to call it Windows 8.
