    'Windows Lite' is still in the works internally at Microsoft, with rumors pointing to a spring unveiling. But, what should it be called?

    Microsoft has never really been good at naming Windows.
    For the most part, Windows names have been uninspired, boring, or just confusing. So, when rumors emerged suggesting that "Windows Lite" might actually use the name Windows when it's announced officially, I was surprised. Why? Because this would be an excellent time for Microsoft to branch out, try new things, and kickstart an entirely new generation of computing experiences powered by Windows, without all the legacy expectations that the name Windows brings with it.

    Skylight doesn't sound marketing-wise. I feel they would be better with a shorter name. And remember, the name will be prefixed with "Microsoft", so it has to sound catchy. Also maybe has to be something that emphasizes mobility and agility.

    Microsoft used the "Go" with their Surface brand. How about the Microsoft Go OS that goes with all these new hardware they might release?

    I think it's not a bad name. There's various apps has a lite version which is stripped down.
