Windows 7 Trivia Question

A friend of mine needs this for a project he's working on. He's been asked: Another name for Windows 7: 3 letters, 1 number. The answer is NOT Win7.

I've sifted through Microsoft codenames myself and can't find an answer. Can anybody here help?

Thanks.

I doubt it's Win6, though that is technically it's version number (6), just like Vista.

I can't remember any other code-names for it.

Windows 7 is the seventh NT build, not sixth.

Known codenames for Win7 are: Seven, Se7en, Win7, WinSev, Blackcomb, Vienna. Possible even Lisa. But that was only the milestone build. Which is basically Vista with few patches.

I think they screwed up that one mate. It has to be Win7 then.

EDIT: It would be possible to use an acronym in referance to Seven. NTB7, NT Build Seven. But I've only seen that once, and that was a Linux machine pinging a Seven laptop. I strongly suspect the name was user created.
