    I wonder how long MS will be allowed to use the name Edge?

    You would think after the Skydrive thing they have looked at all their major product names very closely before release.

    I would have thought they wanted to distance themselves from IE. Edge has a long ways to go yet. It still has some of the same problems as earlier builds.

    I don't think ford has a case with trade names after the issues with the "Mondeo" world car - In at least one of it's South American markets the word Mondeo had bad connotations
