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

    This is MS were talking about...

    It will depend on who the marketing team that are employed at the time when the 'hype machine' is ready to engage.

    Not yet.

    Pick your website, some say it will be 8, some say it definitely will not be 8.

    We'll see later...

    Rumors have it, inside MS they are calling it Windows Next.

    When you think it, that would be quite a good marketing name?

    But when the subsequent OS comes out will they have to re-name it 'Windows Last'?
    Or, instead of Windows 9 they could call it 'Windows next one' and ...next two...etc.

    It would stink if they didn't name it 8, because this site is already named The Eight Forums.

    Good point Jonathan but I doubt if MS, takes that into consideration.

    If MS wouldn't name it as Windows 8, then we can change the name of this website and redirect everyone who logs on to this website.

    That would mean more work for the mods though.
