Windows 7: Just was thinking....

Just was thinking....

Windows Seven, should be renamed Windows. Just simply Windows. No suffix. No XP, no Vista, no codenames, no numbers. Just simply Windows. This OS is by far the best I have used. Sure it has some bugs here and there, but that's what happens with Betas.

It could be:

Windows Basic
Windows Business
Windows Home Premium
Windows Ultimate

Just like when movies are named after their first. Rambo 4 was just Rambo. Rocky 6 was simply Rocky. For games Test Drive 7 was just called Test Drive.

I just personally think it would be cool. Kind of epic in a dorky kind of way. Make this the new definitive Windows. All future installations shall build upon this.

LOL, I think the problem with that would be when they bring out the next one people would be confused as to whether this is the only Windows, if it's the first one etc. I think 7 is a good idea, as it's not long at all.

Vista Ult 64 bit Seven Ult RTM x64
 
 

I don't really care what it's called. That's up to marketing. Just so they don't push it out the door before it's ready. Just 'Windows' would be confusing though.

I can understand where that would cause confusion. Sorry, just me being a Windows dork.

I have always thought it better to be Windows as the brand and the # for the version. Otherwise you would not be able to tell what version the copy of Windows is with just a Windows name on it by itself.

Just my opinion though.

Thinking of going to SSD
I'm really thinking of making the jump to SSD. I have my eyes on the OCZ Agility 2 60GB. (I have the current drive and additional 160GB drive to backup all my files, etc.) Space on the other drives is NOT an issue. I'm using 42GB of 260 right now on my WD drive. I'd put the OCZ as my...

Seriously thinking about getting an SSD
I'm currently considering the benefits of getting an SSD. There are certain circumstances keeping me from getting one at the moment, but as soon as I can buy one without going broke, I plan to buy a 30-32GB one for the OS and use my current HDD for file storage. If you had to choose between the two...

Thinking about a new SSD
Im thinking of getting around a 250GB SSD. Do they last any longer or shorter than HDDs? Will they make my computer faster? The big question: Is it worth it, or should I go with a 500 GB 7200 RPM HDD?

thinking about SSD
Hello again, Looking to move my primary W7 machine to SSD in March. Plan on a small one, probably 32gigs for W7, CS4 Design Premium, etc. etc. Is this too small, do I have to go 64gigs? Also, most of the reviews out there, at least on New Egg are average except for the Intel ones. Any...
