 :lulz: You just know that the Microsoft marketing gurus are patting each other on the back and congratulating one another on how brilliant they are, while the rest of the world is going  :roll:

But this IS brilliant. Every odd-numbered version of Windows sucks, and this is the most effective way to avoid that problem.

I thought it was the other way around. 7 seems good. 8 seems crap.

Fixed and I'll bet you a fiver on it.

Quote
Hitchhiker: You heard of this thing, the 8-Minute Abs?
Ted: Yeah, sure, 8-Minute Abs. Yeah, the excercise video.
Hitchhiker: Yeah, this is going to blow that right out of the water. Listen to this: 7... Minute... Abs.
Ted: Right. Yes. OK, all right. I see where you're going.
Hitchhiker: Think about it. You walk into a video store, you see 8-Minute Abs sittin' there, there's 7-Minute Abs right beside it. Which one are you gonna pick, man?
Ted: I would go for the 7.
Hitchhiker: Bingo, man, bingo. 7-Minute Abs. And we guarantee just as good a workout as the 8-minute folk.
Ted: You guarantee it? That's - how do you do that?
Hitchhiker: If you're not happy with the first 7 minutes, we're gonna send you the extra minute free. You see? That's it. That's our motto. That's where we're comin' from. That's from "A" to "B".
Ted: That's right. That's - that's good. That's good. Unless, of course, somebody comes up with 6-Minute Abs. Then you're in trouble, huh?
[Hitchhiker convulses]
Hitchhiker: No! No, no, not 6! I said 7. Nobody's comin' up with 6. Who works out in 6 minutes? You won't even get your heart goin, not even a mouse on a wheel.
Ted: That - good point.
Hitchhiker: 7's the key number here. Think about it. 7-Elevens. 7 dwarves. 7, man, that's the number. 7 chipmunks twirlin' on a branch, eatin' lots of sunflowers on my uncle's ranch. You know that old children's tale from the sea. It's like you're dreamin' about Gorgonzola cheese when it's clearly Brie time, baby. Step into my office.
Ted: Why?
Hitchhiker: 'Cause you're fuckin' fired!

Keep in mind, this is the same company that chose Xbox 360 over Xbox 2, because they were afraid that rubes would see Playstation 3 and just assume that 3>2.

Where was that logic when they came up with Xbox One for the new machine then?

There were a great many questions when they announced the Xbox One. The name was one of the only things people weren't outraged over so it stuck, with the occasional use of Xbox 180 used by reporters.

Except Server 2012 also ditched the start menu and forces sysadmins to use that awful metro UI. Microsoft has their heads so far up their asses they can see Microsoft Bob.
