    Eh, it may fit their business model better, but I thought SkyDrive sounded a lot better.

    One drive to rule them all
    One drive to find them
    One drive to bring them all
    and in the cloud bind them

    I'm still pissed that they had to change the name (still pissed about the loss of Metro too), but I'm good with OneDrive. It fits with Microsoft's new "One Microsoft" vision, so it works well.

    The name isn't bad. I did really like the SkyDrive name though.

    I don't think it was an actual loss, more like they gave in once realizing where they were headed with their unification. XBox One was getting ready, they were already working at a One Microsoft and working on a Windows One OS, only makes sense that they would want to drop Skydrive to become OneDrive for all their services.

    It now becomes the central core to unifying their services together. I don't see why people don't see that.

    One Direction? J/K! The "One Microsoft" vision infringes the musical philosophy of a "unified youth." That and they're British, like that last company that sued for name infringement.

    Should have called it Xdrive. Then, when Windows 10 comes out, we'd have Xdrive, Xbox, Xwin and Xphone. Way cool.

    I think OneDrive is probably the best alternative, although I liked Skydrive name a lot. Sucks that these stupid companies have to stroke their e-peens by trying to own the word "Sky" or "Metro".

    I've always been surprised that Microsoft SkyDrive and Google Drive have peacefully co-existed (or have they; I've never heard of any problems). If one of them was Apple there probably would've been some issues!

    The one thing I did think about today when I saw this - SkyDrive has pretty decent name and branding recognition. On the whole that recognition is positive, something Microsoft really needs.

    I am sure that searching SkyDrive will continue to bring you where you need to be, but they'll need a pretty diligent awareness campaign to let people know this is the same thing!

    They would have to buy XDrive from the owner. There used to be a service back in the day called xdrive which is similar to what is going on with cloud service today..

    They'll have to change the logo. The clouds don't go well with the new name, since people associate clouds being in the sky.

    Any idea what would be a good logo for OneDrive?

    Thus is just getting stupid. I think SkyDrive and CloudDrive are closer to the same as OneDrive. These companies just need to get over the fact that you cannot copyright the word One. And who would confuse it, whose heard of one.com. One.con maybe ...

    I agree. But it's not quite as ludicrous as trademarking the word "Candy"....

    Than there should be
    OneMail
    MediaOne
    OneSync (which syncs all products with bookmark/password/app+game data/settings)
    Interesting One.
