Some things just seem to keep reappearing like a bad penny, and for Windows Live its undoubtedly the naming strategy. Since the Folders beta was expanded earlier this week, the login page has referenced the service as Windows Live Skydrive. As we’ve talked about previously, Skydrive was the codename for the cloud storage service while it was in initial development. We managed to get the following official comment:
“Windows Live Folders has always been a placeholder name only and will not be the final name of the service when it ultimately launches. We are not able to publicly confirm any name beyond Windows Live Folders at this time; however, Windows Live Folders is in beta, and in addition to gathering input and making changes to the service, Microsoft will update the name as well.
