I feel sorry for them - hate to think of all the places the name is included in source code for Windows 8, client apps, web sites...

OneDrive sounds kinda dumb - at least is wasn't AzureDrive or CloudDrive.. or Drive 365

I'd like to see a new release fixing synchronisation bugs. That'd be better than a new name. But since a new name is mandated because they lost a lawsuit...

why do you think it took so long to announce?  Testing

find & replace. SkyDrive -> NewDrive -> OneDrive ;)

It isn't, sky drive is good becuase it tells you where it is stored. Onedrive doesn't. Skydrive is as good s name as icloud, as both tell you it is cloud storage in it's brand. Onedrive doesn't.

As long as it works it can be called anything

 Interesting. You're afraid of insects and women. Ladybugs must render you catatonic.

I'm hearing that some loyal OneDrive (SkyDrive) customers have got a code for an additional 20GB of free OneDrive (SkyDrive) storage for a year.. Does that mean we get one as well?

I have been using the same Hotmail account created in 1995. It's the same account I had in my Windows Phone 7, Windows Phone 8 and didn't get the 20GB round a couple of months ago. I also don't think I will get the OneDrive round (being pessimist).
