Breaking News: Official Name of “Windows 7” Announced

Windows 7 is now Windows 7 “It is?  It’s announced?  What’s the name?”

“Windows 7”

“Yeah.. the product that was codename ‘Windows 7’.  What’s the official name?”

“Windows 7”

“Um.. The official name of what was known as ‘Windows 7’ is..”

“Windows 7”!  Yep. 

“I’m confused.”

That’s the official name now.  Windows 7 is now the official name of the product formerly codename “Windows 7”.

Check out the Windows Vista Team Blog for the official announcement.

“Wow..  Really.  Hmm.  Well.. that’s easy to remember.”

Yep.  No worries about screwing up during some webcast/podcast/screencast and slipping up by saying the wrong thing.  Now it’s “So you see here in Windows 7… er, I mean.. in Windows 7… “


“So, do you like the name, Kevin?”

I love the name ‘Kevin’.

“I mean.. do you, Kevin, like ‘Windows 7’?”

Of course.  I especially like anything that rhymes with ‘Kevin’.  Seriously, though, I didn’t like the Windows Vista name originally, but it grew on me.  But this one I actually like pretty well.  I might like it better as “Windows VII”, but that’s just because I think roman numerals are cool.
