I have a long history as a Windows user. In fact, I have Windows 1 sitting on my desk. Actually, these are installation floppies for the Microsoft Windows Operating Environment.
I have disliked the Windows product naming convention since Windows 95. That should have been Windows 4.0 with some extra designation to distinguish it from NT. Since then, the naming of Windows versions has been absurd.
I’m thrilled that the next one is called Windows 7. I hope this is the end of the trend of seemingly arbitrary names interspersed by release years. If the subsequent name isn’t 7.x or 8, however, this will actually just have been worse then calling it 2010.
