And would that surprise you.?
Not really.. but I have to admit Microsoft is starting to get their act together lately.

I'm sure they will keep the name simplified.

Nothing...

It'll still be pre-loaded on every machine that anybody buys.

There will be no options...

Everyone is expecting Windows 8 now, so I would have thought Microsoft would almost be forced to stick with it, otherwise, it would cause a lot of confusion.

im sure the site could change the logo and the url pretty quickly if ms decided to change the name on us. but i doubt that is going to happen. i think MS is starting to drop codenames. im sure longhorn-vista had an impact on this

I don't know if there will be a "Windows 9" though, after 8 numbers just sound tacky.
