Windows. Really?

Windows Se7en? Really?

Dear Microsoft Branding and Logo Team,
1. I hope I don’t have to point out to you that the thing that comes to mind when I and most people think “se7en” is a really gruesome horror movie.
2. Was Vista that bad that you need to cover it up with a new “version” (read: upgrade, costing hundreds of dollars) already?
3. Where did you get “7”? By my count, even if you only count major consumer-facing releases, you have Windows 3.1, then 95, 98, XP, and Vista, making this Windows 8. If you count NT, ME, 2000, 2003, etc, you have a lot more than 7.
4. Oh my god that spells “sezen.”

Current versions of windows were designed off of the windows nt 4.0 philosophy.

If you look in the “about” boxes for each operating system..

Windows 2000 - 5.0
Windows XP - 5.1
Windows Vista- 6
