"Windows 7" will be called "Windows 7"

Windows 7 logoAt Microsoft’s Windows Vista Blog, Corporate VP Mike Nash reveals that the actual name for the next release of the client Windows operating system which is codenamed "Windows 7" will surprisingly be "Windows 7":

And, as you probably know, since we began development of the next version of the Windows client operating system we have been referring to it by a codename, "Windows 7."  But now is a good time to announce that we’ve decided to officially call the next version of Windows, "Windows 7."

As had been touted previously, Mike also wants to remind us that more Windows 7 details will be revealed at PDC08 and WinHEC08:

In a few weeks we are going to be talking about the details of this release at the PDC and at WinHEC. We will be sharing a pre-beta "developer only release" with attendees of both shows and giving them the first broad in-depth look at what we’ve been up to. I can’t wait for them to see it.
