- InternetNews Realtime IT News – Windows 7 Gets Its Coming-Out Party This article includes a brief overview of Windows 7, the replacement for Windows Vista. But where does the 7 come from? I thought it went Windows 3, Windows NT (this would be 4), Windows 2000 (5), Windows XP (6), and Windows Vista (7) – making this Windows 8, right? And how ’bout the consistency of that naming scheme? In terms of a pattern this is something like A, B, C, B, D, A. (Where A is a version number, B is two letters, C is a year, and D is a name.) Weird stuff. Anyway, perhaps this revision will help schools with a Windows base make an easier transition to a modern operating system. tags: windows
