Yeah, thanks. I know the actual version of history of Windows, you know. I was trying to figure out how they arrived at "Windows 7," but clearly it's an arbitrary designation because it doesn't appear to be based on the genuine version history and doesn't take into account that the DOS-based line was superseded by the NT line. Most users probably have no clue XP has a completely different architecture than 95/98/Me did.
