Official: Windows 8 to be known as...Windows 8
Microsoft has let the cat out of the bag, and Windows 8 will in fact be known as, well, "Windows 8". Everyone has been calling it that for a long time, but the folks at Redmond only now officially acknowledged the moniker. I was secretly hoping for some weird off-the-wall name to actually surface at the last minute, but alas, no.
Windows 8 Server will be referred to as Server 2012, and the other three versions will be Windows 8, Windows 8 Pro and Windows RT (the latter is the version that will run on ARM powered platforms).
