SkypeCentral may be the new name of Skype for Business [Update: It's not]

Update: We have heard back from Tony Eversole in regards to the post, and it seems as though things were misunderstood.

Regarding this post, Skype Central is a placeholder name for a personal Windows 10 Universal App I am developing that acts as a document/tools/blog aggregator. It has nothing to do with Skype for Business or the Skype Product Group. The entry on TechNet was a test feed to be delivered to the app for feed testing and Live Tile testing. The logo is also unofficial and does not represent any current or future Skype rebranding. Apologies for the confusion.

There you have it, folks. Skype for Business is still the name.

Original: According to a post that was discovered, it appears as though Skype for Business may be changing its name to SkypeCentral. The post, which was found on Microsoft's TechNet Blogs, was made by Tony Eversole, and it is listed as a "placeholder entry for Skype Central Universal Windows 10 App." The full post reads:

Placeholder entry for Skype Central Universal Windows 10 App. The idea is to have a shared blog from which PFE/DSE engineers can update the main landing page of the app to include news, troubleshooting, CU release information, or anything related to Skype for Business. This shared blog feed will be the mechanism from which Windows 10 Live Tiles are updated (notifications in Action Center, Live Tile data update, new article count, etc). This shared blog/feed can be hosted on TechNet or a 3rd party blogging service which complies with RSS 2.0.

The only other post made by Eversole reads "Test of live tile update," which was posted just a few hours after the post above. In addition to the text, Eversole has uploaded some new images which show off a potential logo change along with the branding change.
