    The Name Windows 8 ....


    Hi all
    I know this is a little picky but I just feel that Microsoft put nothing into making its new name for the OS, I think that windows 8 just sounds a little lame and rubbish
    Let me know what you think

    Why not? Before came 7, now we have 8. Better than XP (is this an RPG?) or Vista (how about Panorama?)

    Funny, I don't know, it's ok I guess. Why not? Is Windows 7 lame and rubbish?
    Maybe silly to call it Windows Tiles, or Microsoft OS8, or Windows Imagination?

    Maybe they should have called XP -> Windows 5, and Vista -> Windows 6.

    With metro all painted up and cheap looking, I would have named it: Windows CallGirl
    What do you think?
