Windows 8 or 2012 is fine.

Besides, how could Microsoft ever follow up a version called Windows Infinity? Windows Infinity Plus 1? :laugh:

They did it on The Office (US) "Dunder Mifflin Infinity 2.0!" :)

However for the record I think Infinity is a bad name. Windows 8. Period. No sideways 8, nothing. Windows 8.

It's clear none of you guys work in advertising. Sinofskys probably just trolling you all and they'll call it Windows 8 in the end.

I like the name "Windows 8". Simple, Clean. Just like the Metro Design Language there using.

(And easy to say. Who wants to say, "Windows Inifinity". Mouthful much).

Seeing the pic you have set as your avatar maybe it'd making you happy if they called it Windows 7-2? Or would that be 7-3?

Clean, simple, easy to remember.

It does indeed, but sadly, it'd be a bit of an ironic name when "Windows Infinity" (or Infinite) gets replaced by a newer version later on. :p

The next version would be Windows Infinity +1

Unlikely, since most people wouldn't have even heard the word. Cirrus:thumbnail.aspx?q=1201185362592&id=d749f620993e973554dcb6140ff50ab9&url=http%3a%2f%2fupload.wikimedia.org%2fwikipedia%2fcommons%2f9%2f94%2fCirrus_clouds_mar08.jpg

But if they do, I want it to be: cumulonimbus thumbnail.aspx?q=1200192237265&id=1e0ecc222ac4d3f3a8241f509dac2950&url=http%3a%2f%2fupload.wikimedia.org%2fwikipedia%2fcommons%2ff%2ff7%2fCumulonimbus_Clouds.jpg
