    Windows 8 to be called... Windows 8

    Microsoft has been silent about the name of the next version of windows,even in the CES 2011 it was just referred as next version of Windows, but recently another MSDN blog referred to it as Windows 8. Christian Kirchesch, the person responsible for the design and orientation of Microsoft’s online presence in Germany with respect to Windows operating systems (Windows Home: Windows 7 Features & Tours, Windows Downloads & More and has posted a blog post naming next version of windows to be windows 8.

    Microsoft was indeed quick to remove the post and wasn’t even cached by Google but MS own search engine Bing have cached the page.

    I don't see why not. Windows 7 is simple enough and calling it Windows 8 keeps it simple.
