Thoughts on the ‘new’ Windows name

2011-01-21 11:19


Today is a surprise, many people, depending on your speech. Microsoft to choose a low-key and effective channels for the next announced the final brand, Windows versions of Windows. We in Microsoft Office 2010 is so great.

the window codenames fan community has been used in the last game and product technical testing. I have been discussing this nickname for Windows and for a long time, now and other community such as Ed Bott brought the issue last week.Office 2010 is my favorite.

I have my personal opinion. In early August, I share my ideas in post Mary Jo Foley about Microsoft called: you say the main, I say little - window

Let me just cited, this is what I say, you can see the post here


"My ideas.Microsoft Office is helpful.

I hate to say it, but the window's client started seven sounds like a small release. With the server and client will RTM, increased considerably more practical version of Windows and 6.1. I was listening to the code is due to Steve Sinofsky like integer, but at the same time, it will increase. Office 2007 is the best invention in the world.

Why do you want to call codename 7 ' 'Windows window, unless the team is considering a 7 day release products, rather than a window version 7' 'NT kernel itself. We must consider that Microsoft stopped using nt $version in its brand with Windows 2000 and Windows XP, 5.1 earthquake are 5.0, 5.2 server 2003.Microsoft Office 2007 can make life more better and easier.

The problem here is that, I just found written above, Microsoft can not use this logic, because it means that the Windows XP is released, the sixth street seventh and eighth 7 is... Microsoft need to explain himself. If it continues to 61 version, it by beta - 1, a Vista R2 Windows Server 2008 R2 releases.Office 2007 key is very convenient!

Another thing about version

In the early development of the region is in total, when operating alpha, Microsoft for it, I said 4xxx version 6.0. Since the establishment of the Windows and leak, we have been seen earlier this year have been using this version as the core. And some people say, because not all products have Office 2007 download is helpful!

enough mature, Microsoft is part of what is called "winmain built. Fan community in 2008, to the Windows and kernel software will reflect the 7th edition, but only a few months and PDC time, it seems unlikely, at this stage. "

I must admit, I have been reading the release of mistakes, but I may have decided to communicate Microsoft outlook 2010 is convenient!

and Microsoft Windows.

Some people were for Windows XP 5.1 as the main release, insult and window was released as a seventh, it will actually make it eight release. Let us return to recall.

The window to 1.0-110

2-2.0, 2.1 Windows

Windows - 3.0 times, 3.1, 32 (China) NT $35,000 and 3.1, 2005

Windows 95-4, NT 4.0, 98 98 selenium, I

Windows - 2000 (5), XP (0), server 2003 5.1 / R2 (2).

6x Windows Server 2008 -

The window 7

This version also needs to be questioned, because the kernel version of Microsoft thinks that still Outlook 2010 is powerful.

6.1 and a major in XP (51). Marketing is the prominent contradiction, when you look deeper seven months. Windows logical reason was named reasons, but the kernel version of Microsoft had mentioned the Microsoft - compatibility.

"In addition, window more fluently, although 7 code (pretentious sounding result is big and round Sinofsky digital) not Windows nt seven, but 6.1 (current building are numbered, as the continuation of the direct costs 67xx code library). Simply said, it is not a big jump like a codebase revision and new changes in the client and the server, will focus on the characteristics of user, not the core system component. WDDM 2 big core OS kernel scheduling changes and update eliminate bitmask enumeration of simple system can arrange more processor 64 thread."Windows 7 make life wonderful!

Microsoft to ensure compatibility is not a problem, this release, and 6.1 for NT kernel guarantee. Many people say the release of small, but please understand that it is not actually, it mainly, there will be more to find. Windows XP itself is also considered a major updates, as the moon underwent many changes in the theme and update the start menu except the first consumer version of Windows based on nt dollars.
