Windows 7 = Windows XP SP 7

Ever wonder how Windows 7 got its name?

It's just Windows XP Service Pack 7.

Really.

Count 'em:

Windows XP

Windows XP SP 1

Windows XP SP 2

Windows XP SP 3

Windows XP SP 4 aka Windows Vista

Windows XP SP 5 aka Windows Vista SP 1

Windows XP SP 6 aka Windows Vista SP 2 (has been RTM, available shortly)

Windows XP SP 7 aka Windows 7
