re: Microsoft: 100,000 Windows 8 Apps Coming
You know, a few things in this article seem to make a lot of sense, and making sure software is compatible with new versions is key.
First off, Android decided to name all their software after sweets.
Apple chose big cats for Mac OS 10. (OSX)
Here, I propose that Microsoft, in its infinite wisdom do something similar, but name the products after meat that sizzles. Unfortunately, it seems you can't cook sugary foods, and exotic cats are relatively expensive unless your on safari.
So here's some examples for common folk-
Windows 8 Hamburger
Windows 8 Bratwurst (Bug Fix Servicepack)
Windows 9 Bacon
Windows 9 Turkey (Bug Fix Servicepack)
Windows 10 Sausage
Windows 10 Pork Links (Bug Fix Servicepack)
If there's ever a Servicepack 3, it should be called Prime Rib or maybe something that requires BBQ sauce or Steak Sauce. Windows 8 Pork Rib or Windows 8 Prime Rib, this way, people will know it's real good, and should upgrade, even if it costs a small fee.
The possibilities are endless, I think it could work. Someone has to come up with snazzy names. Might as well be me.
