Today we have a number of applications, services and platforms working and belonging to one of the current technological giants such as Microsoft, however, as the years have gone by, we have realized that the names assigned to everything this, in many cases, confuses its clients in an important way.
To start we can review the different versions of one of its flagship products, the Windows operating system, where it has been possible to see that the company is unable to follow a consistent and more or less correlative nomenclature.
From Windows 3.1 passed to 95, 98, 2000, ME, XP or Vista; while the most current are Windows 7, 8 and 10. Thus there is no one to clarify, as it has already been commented on many occasions.
On the other hand, one of the most recent changes of the name has been carried out in one of its most important platforms while used, we refer to the official store of its system, the formerly known as Windows Store, quite logical designation; Well, now it has changed to Microsoft Store.
The most confusing aspect of this modification is that the physical stores of the firm itself are also called Microsoft Store, so calling in the same way the official virtual store and its chain of physical establishments, is also somewhat surreal since it can take to confusions.
Another clear example we have been able to see one of their projects initially more ambitious and has finally been a complete disaster, we are talking about its operating system for mobile devices.
We say this because there came a time when many users no longer knew how to really name it, whether Windows Mobile, Windows Phone 7, or Windows Phone. Something similar happened with another of its plans that was finally discarded, we refer to the recently disappeared music platform via streaming itself from Microsoft.
