Holy cow, I wrote a book!
Poseurs will call Windows versions by their programmatic version numbers.
For example, they will call Windows Vista "NT6" and Windows 7
Trust me, nobody on the Windows team calls the products by their
programmatic version numbers.
Whenever anybody says "NT6"
I have to go to Wikipedia and look up what
they're actually talking about.
If I even care to bother, and usually I don't.
Actually, since I work in the client division,
I also have to go look up what
Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2 corespond to.
People will ask question about client-related issues on server,
and we have to go back and match it up.
It's like TV insider poseurs who refer
to episodes as "Season 3 Episode 9"
instead of by their title or just a plot description.
If you say to somebody who works on a TV show,
"In season 3 episode 9,
that she is an only child,
yet in season 5 episode 12,
she talks about her older sister,"
they will have no clue what episode you're talking about.
They will also tell you to
get a life.
The phrase "clearly states" is a pretty good tip-off
that you're dealing with somebody who needs to get out of
their parents' basement more.
