And then a guy will (spoiler)Just call it Se7en. Cool 133t marketing will ensue.
So, I've used Windows 1, 2,3,3.1,3.11, 95, 2000, XP, couldn't run Vista and now they're moving on to 7?
Ok, wait... how did they get to Windows 7 as the version number?
If I were to guess based on experience, I'd say Windows 3.1, 95,98,ME,XP, Vista.
But.. that doesn't include NT4/2000/2K3 etc., and leaves out Windows 1 and 2 (not that I've used them). So.. how does that work?
Windows 7.11 for workgroups
...was hoping for "Windows Froot Loop" but this is OK, I guess...
And this should come on floppies, Just like the last one did(3.11).
Jumping to conclusions ftw. Most programmers don't start at 1.0.0 and then continue from there. If 1.0.0 was the previous RTM version, then the development for 2.0.0 would most likely start at 1.x.0, with the final version attaining 2.0.0.Isn't the latest kernel version in "7" version 6.1 or something? Marketing ftw.
It would be more appropriate to call it Vista R2. Then again, people won't buy it if Vista is attached.
you know what this means?
they're officially admitting that they re-sold us Windows 95 four times over (98, 98SE, ME) and Windows 2000 twice (XP) since those two families would be considered versions 4 and 5 respectively
Here are some more off the top of my head:
Windows NT 7.0
Windows for Workgroups (maybe the "Home edition" of the next iteration) 7.0/.1/.11
Windows 7.0 /386
Windows 7.0 /x64
The only reason I see for Windows 7 is that it avoids the possibility of a Windows 6.66.
