I highly doubt they'll rename it, with the name 'windows 8' being published now and all..

Can't the domain remain as is and change the forum name? I did this on a NASCAR forum, the URL was the same. There was simple change made to the site header. This was with ning and Spruz as hosts. The forum will remain with whatever name MS chooses most likely.

I think it would be easier to Just rename the Domain and Redirect the Forum. Then Install Vbulliten4 and then Upload all the posts , themes etc :)

If MS Does name it differently at the last minute then the decision of this forum is up to Senior Management
