What do you think will Microsoft name the next OS after Win7? Windows Infinity? Windows Cycle? Windows Forever? Or just Windows 8 (because Microsoft got tired of naming their OSes with years or cool-looking names)?

From what I have read it will be named "Windows Pain".

Um...why are we even thinking about this now??? Can we at least wait until Windows 7 comes out? :thumbsup: To be honest, this sounds like a scenario from the old Dilbert cartoon that ran for 2 seasons: "The name is the most important part of the project." :trumpet:

Then again, I'm not an early adopter (still using XP), so what do I know? And, way to be cute, rigel...I'd buy it. :flowers:

Gives us something to do, I guess? :thumbsup:

I'm also using XP since some of my programs probably won't run on Vista, nor do I want to risk it......let alone that, despite that it says it's Vista compatable, the computer isn't powerful enough to handle both Vista and some of my resource heavy programs that I have on here *coughcough3dsmaxandphotoshopcoughcough*
