Windows 7: Do you name your Computer ?

20 Sep 2010   #51

Windows 7 Enterprise x64 SP1

My build: Xena (or The Tower ->since it is my only desktop)
My HP TouchSmart AiO: Tootsie
My 5yr/old HP laptop: Rocky

Whenever any misbehaves, I usually talk down to them like they are a misbehaving child.

Windows 7 x64 Ultimate SP1

My Toshiba has a nice simple name - The Beast.

To scare other lowly network peers packetless, it describes itself on that playground as 'The Big Beast'.

Of course, in my Croatian language.

Windows 7 Ultimate

Mine is simple...I call my Win7 Laptop (Dell XPS 1710) "Lappy" and call my main Windows 7 PC "Bertha".

Win 10 x64 Pro x64 / Ubuntu 15.10 x64

For some strange reason, I've stuck with the same computer name through the last 2 buids... I call mine Monstrosity. Partly because it is a monstrosity compared to most of my friend's machines, but also because it's fun to make people try spell it when they want to access my shared folders at our network gaming sessions... Lol.

I've helped name a few other peoples' computers though; we called my ex's machine 'Bubbles' (just to be random), and one of my friends ended up with 'Achilles' (that was because his PSU was a bit funny and sometimes it wouldn't start up, so I started calling his PSU his 'Achilles Heel' and the name stuck).

Windows 7 & XP

I have Bigbox & Littlebox. The laptop belongs to work, so not able to rename it, but if I could, it would be Pizzabox (because it opens & closes ;-) )
