    i also agree with our mod here...
    nice and simple, Windows 8....
    Midori (which is what people were calling it before) dosent sound to me (but also longhorn didnt sound to me...) as a OS that i could see marketed (but its just a codename i guess)....
    it sounds more like sets of technologies (like morro Microsoft a/v technology...)

    Well there is no real details on Windows '8' so how do you know for a fact that they are only using numbers? I mean, Azure isn't a number but its the name of their cloud-based OS.

    Everyone's just calling it Windows 8 because we have nothing else to refer to it as (nothing easy to say in conversation at least).
