    My grandma asks me, son what is it that runs on your mobile?
    Me: windows one.
    But what about your computer?
    Me: well all of my devices run the same OS windows One now.

    Seems to probably occur after skydrive rebranding to Onedrive.

    I disagree with calling Windows Phone Lumia. I have a HTC 8X so I do not call my phone a Lumia. Don't call it Lumia sounds stupid.

    Windows is good. I like windows. The name windows is refreshing because when inside of a house and you open a window you get that fresh breath of air. Feels good.

    I like the "One" approach though...
    Xbox One, Surface One, Surface Phone One, Windows One, Windows Phone One, OneNote, OneDrive... Biggest problem will be when a new generation starts. Windows One 2? :P

    You can look at how HTC manages with its HTC One X and HTC One and HTC One Max, and let's see what's next ;-)

    You're right. OneNote and OneDrive aren't things that will ever get "new" versions, just updates, so that just leaves the actual devices.

    Console = xBox
    Phone = xPhone (as opposed to iPhone), also like X-Men - something new, evolved
    Tablet = xPad - ^^
    PC = who uses them anymore anyways? ;)

    Why is it that everyone thinks that just because Microsoft created the Xbox that all their products should have an X in front of it!!

    The name...means nothing, the users experience however means everything. Microsoft should rather just market it more....the Windows phone challenge was an excellent idea they should do again. The user saw the phones potential buy being used buy an experienced wp user and then got to try it out for them self, giving them a proper taste of what wp has to offer...also I'd like to swap my hunk of junk android for a lumia 920. Who cares, ill lose the wp challenge and hand over my droid, just give me my 920

    To be honest I think its a little late to change the name now. People are just starting to take notice, don't know if we should confuse them more.

    Just my opinion; but please NO. Then they would be just like Apple, I everything. Microsoft would be X everything.

    No, it's not "cool". Just because Apple put an i in front of their products it doesn't mean Microsoft need an x in front of theirs. So you're saying this looks cool then:

    xWindows
    xOffice
    xOneDrive
    xOneNote
    xSocl
    xSurface
    xXbox

    Aside from the copyright issues surrounding xWindows, Linux has the X Windowing system, adding an x in front of the names just looks crap!!

    hardware-wise.. OneNote and OneDrive etc makes sense because it IS THE ONE mutual to all devices

    also, isn't cool rather subjective thing? ;)

    It is subjective but Windows Phone doesn't need a name change, it's fine the way it is.

    Microsoft just need the "Dare to Live" tour to advertise it again, that alone seemed to change the perception people have of Windows Phone!!

    Nah, the name "Windows" shouldn't change. If they change Windows, they'd better change Microsoft while they're at it. It's to big a name. Brings up some negative associations born in the nineties/zeroes (buggy, crashes and stuff), but also the positive associations like customization, the system for average Joe and stuff like that.
    I actually really like the play between Windows - One - Objects (like a box or a surface). If they make a Surface One and a Surface Phone One, everything is complete:

    You need a tablet or a phone? Then you need a Surface (physical object). This Surface will have Windows on it (nice symbolism). You should also buy a (X)Box with Windows on it. You don't need anything else, just the One tablet, One phone, One box. It's also obvious that these One Devices come with OneNote and OneDrive.
    Now for Bing... I don't see how that can fit in anywhere name-wise :P

    I really like the name Windows. They really just need to jump ahead 16 months from now, Windows 9 Phone, and we'll all be very happy. UI changes and all. But le sigh, no.

    But that's okay. :)

    In a few more years, Windows will be Windows. There won't be a phone only version. It will just be one OS adapted to different devices. So calling it anything else will go completely against the grain of logic.

    Abandoning the Windows name is not the way to fix reputation. Microsoft just needs to stick with it and make it cool. So far I think they've done a great job by embracing a completely modern approach to digital design. One that everyone else is now trying to duplicate. And they didn't go flat, just to go flat. They truly thought it out well. Unlike Apple with iOS 7.
    Spot on.

    I actually like the Lumia brand. Hopefully Microsoft continue with it, rather than go for, say, Surface.

    I like the One branding, especially after all the OS are unified.
