The reason why Windows 7 is Windows 7 has nothing to do with Windows 3x, 95, etc.  Windows numbers now all have to do with Windows NT.  Microsoft released Windows NT 1.0 in 1993 as the first true 32-bit OS, while Windows 9x/ME were 16/32 bit hybrids.  Windows 3.11 and before were 16 bit.  Windows NT was not DOS based (although it had DOS support), while Windows 3x/9x/ME where based on DOS, even though Windows 95 and up was packed with its own version of DOS.  Windows NT evolved separately from other Windows versions until Windows 2000.  There, DOS Windows was dropped and Windows NT became the main Windows OS.  Therefore, Windows 2000 is technically Windows NT 5.0.  Then Windows XP was released as Windows NT 5.1, and 64-bit Windows XP became Windows 5.2 along with Windows Server 2003.  Then, Windows Vista was released with a whole new version of Windows NT as Windows NT 6.0, along with Windows Server 2008.  Now, Windows is being updated to Windows NT 6.1 for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.  Now, it has seemed Microsoft has lost all sense of imagination when it comes to naming things (Windows Mail.  Seriously.), but "Check out the awesome and new... Windows 6.1!"  just doesn't sound too good,so they decided to call it Windows 7 for marketing.  Hope this clears things up.

What do you always finish the podcast with "talk to you next week" when it's often approx. a fortnight between podcasts?

 

Or does it just feel like 2 weeks?

 I think they were joking about how Gordon's voice quality was crap...just like an iPhone in San Fransisco, crap audio quality.

It's San Fransisco (or more accurately, the government of San Fransisco). They don't want to needlessly murder the poor helpless trees.
