    Unless there is an enormous change in way the that the OS operates and interacts with users, I don't see a reason not to call the next version of the OS "Windows 8". I know that there are other aspects regarding publicity and credibility of the OS, but I don't believe that it is a good strategy for Microsoft to change the outline of versions numbering now, once that Windows 7 is going so good!

    Just my thoghts anyway

    If the screenshot is genuine, then why are there updates available for an as-of-yet unreleased (and presumably unsupported) OS? Suspicious.

    If I was the person figuring out what to name the next version of Windows, I think I'd stay with Win8 for the simple reason that Win7 was simply the best thing MS has put out in YEARS. After XP, ME and Vista, and the resulting chaos, I'd stick with "8" just to reinforce the notion that this can only be an improvement on the best thing since MS started making a GUI-based OS.

    Win 7 worked so well, I'd bet one of my ex-wives they go with Win 8.
