Windows One or Windows United: What should be our new name? Vote!

Today, Microsoft announced the next chapter in their OS story with Windows 10 or better known as one OS to rule them all. The new operating system, which won't officially debut until mid-2015 is meant for everything from a phone to a tablet to PC to even the Xbox One. It is truly a unifying, singular user experience as even the app Store is a one-stop for all devices.

Over the last year or so WPCentral aka Windows Phone Central has been undergoing many behind the scene changes, including more staff writers and an expansion of our coverage from Windows Phone to everything Microsoft. In hindsight, we knew where Microsoft was going with their Phone and desktop OS, so the slow ramp up made sense to us, though perhaps not always to our readership.

There is just one issue we have been thinking about for a long time: Our name.

You may recall my mentioning of a site rebrand in the past. Well, that time is upon us, and we want your input!

Vote for our new name!

After much deliberation, we have two site names that are our frontrunners. We are curious which you prefer:

  • Windows One (
  • Windows United (
  • Something else

Please take into consideration everything from syllables (i.e. Windows One is shorter to say), to typing the URL, and more. Vote below to let us know which you think is the best!

Voting remains open for the next 24-hours; the results are hidden to not sway the vote, and repeat voting is blocked. We should also note that the result is non-binding, though we are sincerely trying to understand which you think is better and why.

Take the poll above and if you are mobile, just hop over to to cast your ballot!

Do you have a better site title?

If you do not like either, you can say that in comments, preferably with a reason too. Likewise, if you think you have a better name, we are all ears, so let us know your great name!
