    Microsoft: Windows 9 Doesn’t Have a Name Yet


    Microsoft is set to break the news on Windows 9 next week, during a press event in San Francisco, and although lots of details have surfaced in the last couple of months, it appears that there’s more to come from the world’s number one software giant.

    As we’ve reported to you earlier today, the President of Microsoft France confirmed during a local press event that the company would unveil Windows 9 in just a few days, hinting that the September 30 event that Microsoft has started sending out invites for would indeed be used for the public debut of the next OS version.

    Now a new statement provided by a company spokesperson to the French version of ZDNet confirms that the next week event is all about the future of Windows, but also adds something that’s as interesting as it is surprising.

    “We look forward to seeing you in late September, in San Francisco, for the future of Windows, which actually at this stage does not have a name as such,” the company spokesperson says.

    It would be another MS pointless change, if they changed the name of the desktop/laptop version.

    There might be a benefit if they changed the name for phones/tablets (Surface?).

    I for one find it hard to believe that any company with a product release coming in less than a week doesn't have the produced named already. IMO, it's just more BS from that sight to keep the hit's going to their site. MS has a name picked out... will they make it known before 9/30. No.. but I bet they have named it.
