FYI: Windows 7 officially becomes Windows 7

OK, I know this isn't the type of thing I'd normally cover on this blog but since all of you will likely be affected by Windows 7 in one way or another I thought you might find this interesting in an FYI sort of way.  Apparently over on the Windows Vista blog they announced that Windows 7 will officially be named...wait for it...Windows 7!  Personally I like the new direction away from the so-called "aspirational" names but then I like simplicity and 7 has always been my lucky number.  What do you think about the new name?

You can read the original blog post at

With the beta bits coming out very soon now I'm sure you'll be hearing much more about the upcoming Windows 7 on their blog so stay tuned.
