I realize this question can't be answered right now but I do think that this is something that will happen as with Windows 10, the "phone" suffix is disappearing from all official MS communication and therefore we should think about how to deal with this.

It seems that Windows (10) Mobile might make a comeback to distiguish between the Desktop / Tablet OS and the one for phones and small tablets (<7.99").

So should / will this site be renamed (propably to Windows Mobile)? What are your thoughts?

I've posted a similar question a while ago for reference.

    I rather prefer stick just with the mobile part. Desktop ans tablet things probably will fit better in Super User. – Vitor Canova Mar 23 '15 at 15:39
  • But, Windows 10 phones are computers? Just attach a screen... – Mikael Dúi Bolinder May 11 '15 at 1:05
  • This will only be possible with all new hardware though. And most questions regarding phones will likely not be relevant for desktop PCs. – Thomas May 11 '15 at 11:38

    windowscentral.com/… So, Windows 10 Mobile. Doesn't really sound much like Windows Phone. – Mikael Dúi Bolinder May 13 '15 at 21:53
  • I'd be in favor of renaming it to something like "Windows 10 Mobile". "Windows 10" brings it up to speed on the latest version (and it won't ever need changed again) and "Mobile" clarifies that it isn't for desktops or tablets. – RareNCool Oct 19 '15 at 20:44

    I do not think Windows 10 will actually be the last version (number) ever. – Thomas Oct 20 '15 at 0:45
  • At this time Microsoft is saying it is. Sadly we can't see into the future, so for the time the best we can do is believe them and name this site accordingly. – RareNCool Nov 2 '15 at 18:08

    I like the name windowsmobile without any version number. – Kolappan Nathan Jan 25 '16 at 16:35
  • I think "Phones' Windows" is perfect. – User5 Feb 13 '17 at 15:44
  • @Thomas: Mac OS 10 has been the latest major version number of Mac OS for sixteen years so far. – unforgettableid Apr 27 '17 at 12:25

I think "Phones' Windows" is perfect name for site now. It will cover up all versions of windows phones and windows mobile (I am not sure if it is on-topic or not) as well as Windows 10 Mobile. It will not be affected by whether Windows 10 is actually the last version (number) or not. Moreover it will not harmful for windows phone as well.

  • No, this is too awkward. I suspect it may be grammatically incorrect. You could call it "Windows for Phones", or "Windows on Phones", instead. – unforgettableid Apr 27 '17 at 12:28
