Rumors for Windows 8: Windows 8 really might not be the final name

January 15, 2011

Another tip from my source “Ryan”.

According to him, the moniker Windows 8 is not at all certain at this point.

He says there are several camps in Microsoft who are for and against the number moniker.

Some feel the continuity is good from Windows 7 and others feel that they need to get off this number train sooner rather than later.

There are several names in the mix but apparently the name battle has been pushed back for a while as (relatively speaking) it’s the least of Microsoft’s problems right now…

I’ll let you guys know if I hear any more. If you have any more tips for this blog, use the contact form and send me an email…
